Treating the person, not the condition: Taking an inclusive approach to diabetes prevention and management
Diabetes is a serious and costly chronic condition that concerns both employers and health plans alike. People are diagnosed at rapid rates — 4,100 new diagnoses every day in the U.S. — and the cost of diagnosed cases totaled $327 billion in 2017. Most programs on the market today push prevention and management techniques that are primarily one-size-fits-all, and often incredibly restrictive. These programs only hurt an employer or health plan’s ability to offer diverse and inclusive diabetes prevention and management.
This webinar will discuss why both employers and health plans must prioritize a personalized, inclusive approach to diabetes prevention and management. Gretchen Zimmermann, Vida Director of Clinical Dietetics, and Elisa Orellana, Localization Manager, will provide employers and health plans with actionable ideas to make their diabetes programs more inclusive for social and cultural differences.
Attendees will learn:
● How diabetes prevention and management programs can take an inclusive approach to support diverse member populations
● Why these personalized programs draw better outcomes
● New research that supports a mind and body approach to treating diabetes
