Just Us Moving Program

The goal of the Just Us Moving Project (JUMP) is to improve diabetes control by reducing the hemoglobin A1C levels of people in African/Black and Hispanic/Latino American communities by encouraging increased physical activity. By promoting and tracking daily physical activities, the information learned in our study can help other African and Hispanic Americans who have diabetes.

You may be eligible if you:

  • Are 18 years or older
  • Have type 2 diabetes

Your participation in this 12-week study is completely voluntary and you will be reimbursed for your time.
