Resources for diabetes
Alaska Health Fair and the Alaska Dept. of Health and Social Services are teaming up to offer free A1C screenings for those who qualify (while supplies last) and free resources on diabetes and prediabetes, including a free membership in the Omada Health online program.
A dedicated health coach and care team will discuss diet and exercise, along with providing interactive weekly lessons and smart devices, all delivered to your door.
To receive the free Omada Health membership, visit https://go.omadahealth.com/alaska, click on “Check eligibility” and enter your Alaska ZIP code when in the form.
Looking ahead to fall
We are quickly booking health fair dates for an active fall season, so call our offices if your community or worksite is interested in hosting an event this fall. We would love to bring our popular services to the people that matter most in your world.
