City of St. Louis Employees Start Diabetes@Work

The SLDC’s Diabetes@Work prograSTL City Hallm has started for the City of St. Louis employees.  More than 25 people with diabetes began the onsite, multi-week self-management training program during the second week of September.  The City is the 4th worksite for the Diabetes@Work program.  To date, the program has consistently demonstrated an ability to improve diabetes control.  With average A1C improvement of ~1%-point, I like to say it works as well as metformin.
