Healthier2gether is a partnership of two world-class health systems, dedicated to diabetes prevention and management.

University of Maryland Medical Center and Johns Hopkins Medicine have collaborated to create the Baltimore Metropolitan Diabetes Regional Partnership — publicly known as Healthier2gether.

The partnership works with community organizations to increase the number of available city-based programs to prevent or delay Type 2 diabetes, and to increase access to community-based diabetes management programs to help people in Baltimore City and throughout Maryland who live with diabetes improve their health outcomes.

This statewide population health initiative is made possible through a grant awarded by the Maryland Health Services Cost Review Commission and is to be implemented over five years. The unified goal of the partnership is to expand the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program and the Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support Program and American Diabetes Association–recognized Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support programs, as well as evidence-based Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services–reimbursed diabetes prevention and management services.
