During this session our speakers will comment on the genesis of the Diabetes Prevention Program for a large public-sector employer in Connecticut. The speakers will discuss multiple outreach strategies for engaging members at risk of diabetes type II through the implementation of an intensive, on-site National Diabetes Prevention Program. Spanning drivers and others who need a clean bill of health and a Commercial Driver’s License for their livelihood, this program successfully engaged a tough to reach cohort of (mostly) men age 40+ to make lasting behavior and lifestyle changes through one-on-one coaching and nutrition education. The speakers will share their first-hand account of this “boots on the ground” approach and how they used science to break through psycho-social barriers to change
