Michigan Diabetes Promising Practices and Outcome Based Programs

Diabetes affects nearly 1 million Michigan citizens. Diabetes is common, costly and serious; but can often be prevented and managed when diagnosed. As the number of people with diabetes continues to increase, health care providers and others continue to look for the best ways to prevent or manage this disease.

People who make healthy lifestyle changes can often prevent type 2 diabetes. (95% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.) People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes can learn to self-manage their diabetes to feel better, stay healthier and reduce complications. Throughout 2011, the Diabetes Partners in Action Coalition (DPAC) Policy and Advocacy Workgroup has been active in compiling promising and outcomes-based diabetes programs in Michigan.
