Help end the diabetes epidemic.

Diabetes has become a serious public health threat, yet less than 5 percent of those eligible are being referred to programs that can help. Your patients who have been diagnosed with diabetes or are at risk for developing it need evidence-based interventions that can improve health outcomes.

Diabetes education is the standard of care and has been proven to improve patient outcomes:

  • Lower their HbA1c by at least 0.2%
  • Lose up to 5% of their body weight
  • Reduce diabetes-related health complications
  • Improve medication adherence

Refer your patients to proven diabetes prevention and management programs.

The CDC estimates that one in 10 Americans is living with diabetes. Johns Hopkins Medicine and University of Maryland Medical Center offer diabetes prevention and management programs that can help your patients gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to thrive.
