Attend a Diabetes Prevention Program information session on campus in September

U-M Premier Care members who are at risk for type 2 diabetes and meet eligibility criteria can now participate in a Diabetes Prevention Program at no out-of-pocket cost through a partnership between the Benefits Office and MHealthy. Program participants are supported in making lifestyle changes to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes, including losing a modest amount of weight, eating healthy foods and becoming more active.
