Employers & Insurers
More than 21 million American adults have diabetes, and another 84 million have prediabetes. These are growing concerns for America’s workforce, affecting the health and quality of life of millions of U.S. adults. These diseases also cost employers and insurers billions of dollars each year in lost productivity and medical expenses.
CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs, a key element of the National DPP, can cut a person’s risk of getting type 2 diabetes in half and reduce the serious conditions associated with prediabetes. Here you will find information on how you can join the national effort to prevent type 2 diabetes and save money on your health costs at the same time.
