Diabetes Prevention Program Solution

Education and Coaching to Prevent T2 Diabetes

Reduce Employees' Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

According to the American Diabetes Association, diabetes has become the most expensive chronic condition in America with 1 in 3 Americans qualifying as prediabetic. The U.S. healthcare system spends an estimated $237 billion each year in medical costs and another $90 billion in reduced productivity. 

In fact, $1 out of every $4 spent in the US healthcare system is spent on diabetes-related care and, unfortunately, employers are often assuming a heavy burden of this cost.

Following the CDC’s 12-month Prevent T2 curriculum, and infusing the WellSpark life-dimensional approach, participants learn valuable tips and gain meaningful insight into how lifestyle behaviors impact overall health.

Whether employees eat from a bowl or a plate, drive a truck or sit in an office, speak English or Creole, we work to ensure that even the hardest-to-reach workforces can participate in culturally-relevant programmingOpens a new window that recognizes the nuances of their type of work.

Program includes:

  • Live-streamed virtual classes (or classes onsite at an employer’s location) and on-demand videos, podcasts and other educational support
  • Recorded versions of classes available on-demand for participants who cannot attend live
  • Social and peer support
  • One-on-one coaching 
  • Secure text and email messaging with coaches

Our Impact

Participants in WellSpark’s diabetes prevention program exceed the national averages of traditional CDC programs for key milestones that include attendance, program completion, achievement of physical activity goals and achievement of weight loss goals.

“I was very apprehensive about joining the program…After 3 sessions, I felt enlightened by the information…classes educated me about diabetes along with healthy cooking, reading labels, shopping for healthy foods and substituting ingredients, along with…exercise and tracking my success, the rewards were losing weight and feeling better…”

“I knew my health was at risk. I had suffered a heart attack before I was the age of 40 and my blood sugar kept creeping up and up year over year. When I saw the…program being offered to us, I knew I had to join; I needed to be around for my young family.”

“This program is life changing. I have been caring for everyone else except myself and was afraid to ask for help. WellSpark nurses showed me how to do both by guiding me to put my health first and get outside help with caring for my parents.”
