How We Help
Evidence-based lifestyle programs help at-risk adults take charge of their health to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. Comagine Health works closely with partners to build programs and reach people who need it most.
Lifestyle change programs are CDC-approved programs that teach at-risk adults to improve their nutrition and increase physical activity. Participants have been shown to reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% and up to 71% for people 60 and older.
Diabetes Prevention Programs for Native Americans
American Indian/Alaska Natives are almost three times more likely than non-Hispanic white adults to be diagnosed with diabetes. To help these communities, Comagine Health partners with tribes, clinics, community-based partners and the CDC to establish culturally responsive Diabetes Prevention Programs.
We also offer opportunities for community members, clinicians, employers and health plans, and other organizations to get involved. Contact us at DPPHelpDesk@comagine.org to learn how you can participate.
