Diabetes prevention

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) powered by Omada helps you reduce the risks of type 2 diabetes.

Why Diabetes prevention?

Governor Jay Inslee’s Executive Order 13-06 (Section 2b) directs the Health Care Authority to implement diabetes prevention. Washington Wellness is also a key member of the Diabetes Network Leadership Team (DNLT) where we collaborate with statewide partners to develop strategies that align with the goals and mission of the participating organizations.

This is why we need your help promoting diabetes prevention.

The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) powered by Omada is a digital lifestyle program available at no cost to eligible PEBB members. This program can help you:

  • Improve your health.
  • Feel better and more energetic.
  • Develop long-term healthy habits

Clinical research shows these lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by almost 60 percent.

What is DPP?

Designed for people who have prediabetes or are at risk for type 2 diabetes, with this program you'll get your own:

What is prediabetes?

Prediabetes is a serious health condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal. About 84 million American adults — more than 1 out of 3 — have prediabetes. Of those with prediabetes, 90% do not know they have it.
