For Health Care Providers

Allow our program to help you help your patients. Based on research from the National Institutes of Health, programs like UMMC’s Diabetes Prevention Program reduces new cases of type 2 diabetes by 58% overall and 71% in individuals over age 60. 

Our year-long program engages participants in 25 sessions and focuses on small, measurable lifestyle goals. With group support and instruction from Lifestyle Coaches, participants learn how to incorporate healthier eating, physical activity, problem-solving and coping skills into their daily lives. The curriculum is CDC-approved and is part of the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program. 

 Referring a patient is simple.
