Diabetes education through Michigan State University provides practical knowledge and skills to Michigan residents who are at risk of diabetes and for those who live with diabetes. Michigan citizens who are pre-diabetic will learn how to help prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes.  Residents living with Type 2 diabetes will learn ways to manage their condition successfully. Through education participants will be able to improve their behavior related to food consumption, physical activity, self-management, self-efficacy, health status and health care utilization.
