Maybe you already offer the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program as a covered benefit for your employees—or maybe you are just thinking about how to get started.
Registering for the online Healm platform will help you be more strategic in your efforts to prevent type 2 diabetes. It gives you access to the information you need when you need it. But the platform offers more than just resources and information. It will make it easy for you to know what decisions are right for your organization, based on both evidence and real-world experience.
But why take only our word for it? We know it’s often more meaningful when you hear from someone in a role like yours who has been through the planning and implementation process. We’ve got you covered!
The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created a network of employer champions called the Employer Network. Healm gives you access to this network, which allows you to stay up to date on webcasts and participate in discussions with these champions.
Through the Employer Network, employers can work together to prevent type 2 diabetes and improve workforce health across the United States. The network can help you make the National DPP lifestyle change program a covered benefit for your employees. It also allows you to share information with other employers and meet with subject matter experts from NACDD and CDC. You can opt out at any time.
Healm contributes to the national effort to prevent type 2 diabetes by making it easier for your organization to prioritize diabetes prevention for your employees. Together, we can prevent type 2 diabetes in the United States, one workplace at a time.
