Lifestyle Choices…Impact our Lives

Impact Diabetes Prevention Study!


Thank you for visiting our site! The purpose of this study is to determine the best educational program for helping people lose weight and keep it off to prevent diabetes. We know that losing weight can be challenging. Our goal is to compare two different approaches to diabetes prevention and weight loss and evaluate which program works best. Listen to the video below to hear a welcome message from our Principal Investigator, Carla Miller.
