REACH (Reaching Euglycemia and Comprehensive Health) helps people achieve euglycemia, or normal blood sugar levels, to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes.
REACH offers an eight-week prevention program for people at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, especially those who have pre-diabetes. People with newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes also may participate.
Our staff includes a multidisciplinary team of diabetes experts, including a physician, a physical therapist, a dietitian, a psychologist and a nurse diabetes educator.
The program features an intensive lifestyle intervention including:
- Support for making life-long changes to improve blood sugar control and health
- Individualized supervised exercise program
- Opportunities to learn from experts in the field of diabetes
- Dietary recommendations
An initial evaluation session is required for participation in the eight-week program.
Early detection and intervention are the best opportunity for good health.

Located at the Coralville interchange on Interstate 80 (exit 242), UI Hospitals and Clinics - Iowa River Landing offers patients easy access, free parking, several amenities, and a state-of-the-art building for delivering outstanding patient care.
