Virtual Safety Council: The Impact of Prediabetes on Your Workforce

Virtual Safety Council: The Impact of Prediabetes on Your Workforce

Thursday, September 2, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EDT)



Nicole Smith, Diabetes Program Consultant, Ohio Department of Health

Liz Curry, Registered Dietitian & Diabetes Coordinator, Ohio Department of Health

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is offering a virtual program to discuss the impact of prediabetes on your workforce. Although prediabetes generally does not have recognizable symptoms, this presentation will outline the risk factors, provide information on a prediabetes risk assessment, and discuss the diagnosis of prediabetes/diabetes using blood tests. Given the rising costs of diabetes care and the increased risk for COVID-19 complications for people with chronic conditions, this is a presentation that could literally save lives. Employers will also learn the benefits of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) and the associated tools and resources available to organizations involved in the program.

Hancock County Safety Council holds regular meetings to increase awareness of a safe environment in the workplace. Safety Council is partially funded through the Ohio Department of Safety and Hygiene and meets once a month to inform participants of new safety techniques, services, and provide a thorough knowledge of topics, including occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation and risk management education.
