The Hawaii Employers Council is excited to announce its partnership with leading Diabetes experts in Hawaii including Novo Nordisk, American Diabetes Association, and Times Supermarkets. Through this partnership, HEC is offering its members the opportunity to participate in Diabetes Care for Life, a free diabetes self-management program. Now in its fourth year, the Diabetes Care for Life program has seen amazing success in helping participants improve both their knowledge about diabetes and overall biometric measurements including A1C!

Through a combination of education, interactive activities, goal-setting, and support, participants will receive comprehensive training that will enable them to engage in behaviors to better control and manage diabetes. See the program flyer for additional information.

Comments from past program participants:

  • “What really helped me was learning about food control.  I lost 16 pounds from January to April.”
  • "Through the program I learned that counting carbs and exercise are both important to helping control my diabetes."
  • "The Diabetes Care for Life program helped me properly monitor my blood sugar. As a result, I now monitor my blood sugar level regularly which give me a better idea as to how well I am controlling my diabetes."

  • Pre and post program biometric screening

  • Importance of nutrition including right-sizing your plate, slow carbs vs fast carbs, and the role of fruits and vegetables
