Diabetes prevention

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) aims to engage Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program members in diabetes prevention with onsite blood sugar testing events. To help you plan, promote, and host a DPP testing event, follow these four steps.

Step 1: Plan and schedule

  1. Get leadership support

    1. Share the DPP brochure with leaders
    2. Share Executive Order 13-06 (Section 2b) with leaders
  2. What to expect

    1. Review the Wellness Coordinator Checklist
    2. Review the Testing Event FAQs
  3. Get started

    Note: Submit your request at least 45 days before the event date.
    1. Use the Testing Event Setup guidelines to plan the layout of your room(s)
    2. Complete the Onsite Event Request Form
    3. Send your completed request form to wawellness@hca.wa.gov

Step 2: Promote

To help you promote your DPP testing event, pick and choose from the promotional materials below you feel will engage your staff.

Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) website

Send employees to Diabetes Prevention Program to find out more about this PEBB benefit such as who is eligible and how to sign up.

DPP brochure

Use the DPP brochure as a detailed overview of diabetes prevention.

DPP flyers

Use one or both of these flyers as a handout or poster to promote your event. To help employees find out if they are at risk for prediabetes, use the DPP risk quiz found on page two of both flyers. 

DPP messages

Use one or both of these customizable messages wherever you promote wellness (such as email or intranet). You will find the customizable instructions on each message.

Step 3: Hold event

Share the following resources with testing event screeners and class providers. You can also use these to get familiar with the process for testing events and classes.
