National Kidney Foundation of Michigan’s Diabetes Prevention Center, in conjunction with LISC, is planning to launch a year-long lifestyle-change program called the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) for 3,500 Michigan residents at risk for Type 2 diabetes. Measurable outcomes will include weight loss, number of minutes engaged in physical exercise, and participation in healthy food/lifestyle classes with the goal of slowing fast-rising rates of diabetes, as well as other related health problems.
