Abstract

Executive SummaryMaking even modest changes in diet and activity levels help cut the risk of obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes.To help prevent the development of type 2 diabetes, a nurse-run telehealth initiative uses an in-home messaging device coupled with a standardized educational regimen, which includes healthy eating strategies, exercise plans, and information concerning the dangers of diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and obesity.The guiding philosophy of the Great Game Plan is the belief that patients identified as pre-diabetic should be empowered to make the lifestyle changes needed to remain diabetes free.Preliminary results are encouraging and it is anticipated that Great Game Plan participants will continue to make progress over the course of the demonstration program.
