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. A variety of morning, afternoon and evening virtual and in-person class options are available.

Employees on an Emory medical plan are eligible to receive up to $250 in medical plan incentives for participating.

To be eligible for the program, you must meet ALL of the following:

  • Have a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or greater (for Asian Americans, 23 or greater)

And meet at least ONE of the following:

  • Have prediabetes diagnosed by a blood test
  • Have a history of gestational diabetes
