Diabetes prevention for PEBB
This webpage offers ready-to-use resources for our member organizations in the Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program to promote diabetes prevention.
Governor Jay Inslee’s Executive Order 13-06 (Section 2b) directs the Health Care Authority (HCA) to implement a diabetes prevention program (DPP). The HCA Washington Wellness team is also a key member of the Washington State Diabetes Network Leadership Team (DNLT). Through this team, we work with statewide partners to develop strategies that align with the mission and goals of the participating organizations.
We need your help promoting diabetes prevention to improve the health and productivity of your employees and their families.
