Celebrate and Promote a Culture of Wellness

This powerful initiative is designed to inspire and fuel our nation's healthful habits at work and beyond. With year-round opportunities, Wellness Lives Here helps companies, organizations and communities educate and motivate people to adopt healthful habits to reduce the impact of type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related illnesses. For some, it means fewer sick days and higher productivity. For others, it means looking and feeling better. For everyone, the result is empowerment—Americans who are better able to control, delay or prevent Diabetes and related health problems.
