“As the largest employer in Minnesota, we are committed both to providing our members with quality health care programs and to controlling cost. Chronic diseases like diabetes impact our employees, our health plan, and our bottom line. Prevention is the key to helping our members remain healthy and lead productive lives, and the DPP is standard of care for individuals with prediabetes.

"The 'Minnesota BE Nice to Yourself' DPP enrollment campaign was started earlier this year [2015]. We’ve enrolled thousands of patients, and the clinical results in terms of interest, engagement, and weight loss have been excellent. Our DPP partner, Omada Health, is providing us with fast, scalable enrollment and engaging programming. We look forward to continuing to work with Omada and expanding access to the program.”

Employer testimonial

Global law firm Latham & Watkins, with nearly 3,000 attorneys and staff in the United States, launched a successful pilot of the National DPP in its New York City office with on-site A1C testing followed by the lifestyle change program throughout 2015. Latham’s wellness team partnered with a respected New York City hospital to increase office-wide awareness of prediabetes. They screened staff concerned about their risk and engaged those identified as high risk.

This approach not only resulted in enthusiasm from program participants, but also underscored the firm’s commitment to preventing type 2 diabetes. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of participants, the pilot's strong results set the stage for an expansion of the program. Ten participants even went from having prediabetes to normal blood sugar levels over the course of a year.
