Diabetes management programs

We’ve partnered with Livongo to bring your employees programs that give them the power to manage diabetes as well as related health conditions. These programs help people develop healthy habits that improve their overall well-being.

Using connected technology, the programs supply your employees with the tools they need to successfully manage their health. Our experts help them make better choices to manage diabetes and related conditions, and combat the risk of complications down the road.

 

Livongo Diabetes Management
