GOOD MEASURES
Virtual Diabetes Prevention Program

Collective Impact brings people together for a structured way to achieve social change.

COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITY

Across the United States, chronic disease touches 1 in 2 adults with diabetes being one of the leading causes of death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 25 million people have diabetes, including both diagnosed and undiagnosed cases. Additionally, the direct medical expenditures attributable to diabetes are over $116 billion and equates for 86% of our nation’s health spending according to the CDC. Diabetes disproportionately affects minority populations and the elderly, and its incidence is likely to increase as minority populations grow and the U.S. population ages. Our mid-central Michigan region is witnessing an alarming rate of deteriorating health outcomes and preventable mortality, especially among the most vulnerable underserved communities.

OBJECTIVE

To address chronic disease and upstream system change through implementation of the program up to 250-individuals within 14-counties.

To help people who have pre-diabetes or certain risk factors and want to try to prevent progressing to type 2 diabetes and make positive changes in their eating and exercise behavior.

MiHIA is implementing the Good Measures’ virtual Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). The virtual intervention will address chronic disease and upstream system change through implementation of the program up to 250-individuals within 14-counties, including Midland County, in a 24-month time period which began February 2019.
