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
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.
