Irene Snow, MD, Buffalo, NY

“What I would say to other colleagues… is that we saw our patients not only actively participate but be successful in the outcomes we were looking for.”

Chris Corsi, MD, Missoula, MT

“Send your patients for this program, have flyers all over your office. Tell your staff to tell every single patient. Print a list of everybody that has prediabetes. If 30% or 40% of those people attend this program, it’s going to change their life.”

	Michael Rosenthal Michael Rosenthal, MD, Family Physician, Wilmington, DE

“We think that the medicines and the advice we give should do it, and we sometimes don’t realize the strength that could be out there with others, like community organizations. I can order a lab, or an X-ray, or even a drug… it shouldn’t be that much harder to order a referral to [a CDC-recognized lifestyle change program] for my patient who’s got prediabetes.”

	Meghan Buhler Meghan Buhler, MD, Family Physician, Venice, FL

“[A patient] told me last week, ‘Thank you; [the program] is really enjoyable, and I’m glad you sent me there.’”
