Do you have prediabetes?
Prediabetes affects 1 out of 3 U.S. adults; of those, 90 percent don’t even know they have it. Prediabetes serves as a warning flag and can lead to the onset of type 2 diabetes. The act2 program is designed to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
act2 is an employee/member benefit. It is an interactive, year-long support and engagement program empowering individuals to take charge of their health and wellbeing as they work with a personal coach to:
- Lose weight gradually
- Build physical activity into their daily routine
- Understand good nutrition and healthy eating habits
- Develop skills for behavior change
- Stay motivated
- Reduce diabetes risk
