Introducing Omada® – An Innovative New Health Benefit Available to U.S. Employees

Omada (formerly called Prevent) is a breakthrough online program that inspires healthy habits you can live with long-term. It combines the behavior change science and unwavering support you’ll need to lose weight, keep it off, and help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Omada® Helps You Lose Weight and Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes

Omada® is based on the Diabetes Prevention Program* clinical trial, which showed that people at high risk can delay or avoid developing type 2 diabetes by losing weight through diet and exercise.

Omada® uses a multi-faceted approach to both inspire and enable change. The program includes:

  • Expert Health Coaching with one-on-one dedicated support and advice from a professional health coach
  • Small Group Support with private online peer groups for encouragement
  • Health Data Monitoring including a no-setup wireless scale to monitor your progress, plus a digital pedometer and mobile app for food tracking
  • Interactive Program that adapts to you
  • Weekly Online Lessons to educate and inspire
