Diabetes Programs

If you are concerned about diabetes, Emory has a variety of programs and services to help you prevent or manage diabetes.

Diabetes Prevention Program

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) is a one-year, small group program that teaches you how to eat healthy, increase your physical activity and manage your stress in order to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. This national program was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Employees on Emory’s medical plan are eligible to receive up to $250 in medical plan incentives for participating in the DPP in 2022.

To be eligible for the program, you must:

  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or greater (for Asian Americans, 23 or greater), AND
  • Have prediabetes diagnosed by a blood test, OR
  • Have history of gestational diabetes, OR
  • Screen positive for prediabetes using the American Diabetes Association risk test

At this time, we are no longer accepting new participants for the Fall 2022 cohort. Another cohort will start a new cohort in early 2023. Please fill out this interest form if you would like to receive information when recruitment starts for the next DPP.
