Case Western Reserve University faculty and staff can decrease their risk for heart disease or diabetes by participating in a free health-coaching pilot from Omada Health. For the second year, the CWRU Wellness Program will offer this program to those that qualify after completing their biometric screening this fall.
The Quest Diagnostic biometric screening schedule is open and all benefits-eligible faculty and staff are invited by the Wellness Program to participate. Register and schedule a screening on the Quest Diagnostic website using registration key “CWRU” or by using your username and password from previous years.
Omada Health will contact benefits-eligible faculty and staff whose screening results indicate they are at risk for metabolic syndrome in three of five areas of concern—blood pressure, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, fasting glucose and waist circumference—with an invitation to join the 16-week program. More details about the Omada Health Program are available are on the wellness website.
Omada participants will move through an interactive program using a wireless scale, professional health coach and weekly lessons. Additional support will be available for the following eight months.
There was a 96% satisfaction rate among the 59 participants who enrolled during the first year of the program. So far, that group has lost 338 pounds.
