GPBCH Launching Diabetes Prevention Learning Collaborative
GPBCH has joined forces with the Philadelphia Health Initiative to improve obesity and diabetes prevention efforts and to create sustainable interventions to improve population health in Philadelphia. In alignment with our four work groups' endeavors we are launching the Diabetes Prevention Learning Collaborative (DPLC). The DPLC is a partnership among local employers to prevent diabetes, reduce diabetes risk, and foster employee health. To do this the DPLC will bring together employers from throughout the region to identify and implement best practices for reducing obesity and other diabetes risk factors, in order to prevent onset of diabetes, and improve employee health and well-being. We encourage all of our members to consider participation in the DPLC which will hold an organizational meeting in late May. For more specific information about the DPLC, including member benefits and expectations from participants, please see the attached document. The DPLC also will be discussed at the May 7th educational program on diabetes prevention.
