Get Healthy Utah is proud to have partnered with Comagine Health, Intermountain Healthcare, Utah Department of Health, and University of Utah Health to host the free virtual summit for worksites Improving Employee Health Through Diabetes Prevention: A Lifestyle Change Prevention Program That Works.
Prediabetes affects 1 out of 3 adults. Without intervention, 15-30% of these individuals could develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years. Type 2 diabetes is costly for both employees and employers.
Costs of diabetes:
- Higher COVID-related hospitalizations
- Higher medical costs
- Higher absenteeism
- Lower productivity
Type 2 diabetes is often preventable. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a CDC recognized evidence-based lifestyle change program that can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58%, decrease the risk of other chronic health conditions, and lower healthcare costs.
Watch the summit recording to learn more about the role that worksites can play in type 2 diabetes prevention and how to best utilize the National Diabetes Prevention Program in your worksite.
