Corporate Wellness

The Diabetes Prevention Program is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) evidence-based healthy lifestyle change program. The goal of the program is to help participants eat healthier, get at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week and lose at least 5 to 7% of their body weight.  In the process of learning these healthier lifestyle habits, participants not only lose weight but also decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. The program can be completed in either an in-person format or an online format.

 

Many worksites are seeing the benefits of this program and are now providing the program to their employees at no cost or at a reduced cost.  If you are an employee, check with your employer to see if the program is covered or to inquire about their interest in offering the program to employees.
