Participate in an innovative, nationwide online clinical trial for type 2 diabetes

Researchers at the University of Michigan and the University of California San Francisco are recruiting adults with type 2 diabetes to participate in a 12-month study of a nationwide online program. The purpose of this study is to determine which program components are most effective for weight loss and blood sugar control.

No in-person sessions are required.

After 8 months, more than 90% of our past participants lost at least 5% of their body weight. And, we pay you up to $100!
