As a King County employee, you have access to free programs through Balanced You that can help you feel better and do your best work. Here are two that can improve your health and well-being, especially if you may be at risk for type 2 diabetes or are already managing a long-term health condition.

Reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes

Some people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes may be able to prevent it with healthy lifestyle changes. Omada’s online program can help. If you qualify, a professional health coach will help you build good habits around food, exercise, sleep and stress. You’ll monitor your progress with a wireless scale and online check-ins with your coach.

Omada is available at no additional cost to King County employees and your eligible dependents who have Kaiser Permanente or Regence BlueShield health coverage.
