CDPHP Announcement - Free online diabetes prevention program for Alaska adults — no matter where they live

Alaska adults can prevent diabetes by participating in a free online program — no matter where they live

Did you know that 1 out of 3 adults has prediabetes, and most of them don’t know they have it? Having prediabetes means you face higher chances of developing type 2 diabetes, which can lead to serious health problems like strokes, heart attacks and blindness.

You can reverse prediabetes by making changes to what you eat, how you move and more. Starting this winter, Alaska’s Diabetes Prevention and Control Program is making this easier by providing a free program for Alaska adults with prediabetes who want to prevent developing diabetes and stay healthy. You don’t have to live in Anchorage or another large community to participate. This program, offered through Omada Health, is available to eligible adults anywhere in the state because you complete the program online.

Through your computer, Omada Health combines ongoing support with the latest technology so you can make small, meaningful changes that matter most. Those changes focus on the way you eat, move, sleep, or manage stress. It’s a personalized approach designed to help you lose weight, gain energy and reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes and other related diseases.

Omada Health starts by providing an easy-to-use wireless scale, delivered directly to you. The scale connects to a personalized online account, making tracking simple. Through this online platform, you will also have access to:

  • A professional health coach to keep you on track
  • Weekly online lessons to educate and inspire
  • A small online community for real-time support
