Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP): The CDSMP has shown to be effective in improving: exercise, cognitive symptom management, communication with physicians, self-reported general health, health distress, fatigue, disability, and social/role activities limitations among individuals living with chronic condition(s). The CDSMP is a 6-week (2 hours per session) program with a 12-week aftercare (1 hour per session) extension. Participation in this program requires a medically diagnosed chronic condition (e.g. arthritis, asthma, diabetes, lung disease, heart disease, stroke).

Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP): For diabetics, the DSMP aims to increase participant’s confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active fulfilling lives through the implementation of highly participative and supportive small group discussions. The DSMP consists of three components: CDSMP, DSMP, and a 6-week aftercare program. Participation in this program requires medically diagnosed diabetic status.

Aftercare Program: The Aftercare Program is designed to extend the support received through the CDSMP and DSMP programs.  Depending on your unique situation a 6-12 week aftercare program will be required to receive the full level 4 incentive.  Contact an Employee Wellness Benefit team member to register for an aftercare program.

The National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) is a CDC developed program that has shown to reduce the onset of diabetes among individuals identified as pre-diabetic by 58%. This 22-week (1 hour per session) program will be the only Employee Wellness program offered to employees who meet the requirements and choose to participate. This program is aimed to help prevent the onset of diabetes among those who identify as prediabetic. Prediabetic status can be assessed in several ways.
