Getting to Action: Employer Best Practices to Defeat Diabetes

Join fellow BHC members for an interactive session defining best practices for the prevention, management, and reversal of type 2 diabetes in the workplace. Review, provide feedback, and refine the BHC’s new framework for the care of people with or at risk of type 2 diabetes, based on recommendations from the National Diabetes Education Program, and discuss opportunities for employers to align well-being and benefit strategies (including education, program, policy, and environmental supports) within this framework to take action. Through this conversation, the workgroup will lay the foundation for an employer pledge, to be released publicly at the BHC Annual Meeting in November. Updates will also be shared regarding progress on the diabetes vendor assessment and campaign activities for the 2020 year.
