Health Champion Designation

We recognize that engaging employees or members in healthy living is no easy task. We applaud these efforts. The Health Champion designation recognizes companies and organizations that integrate and champion a culture of wellness within the workplace. Those meeting criteria in nutrition and weight management, physical activity and organizational well-being have an opportunity to be recognized by the American Diabetes Association as Health Champions.

Benefits of Health Champion Designation:
  • Health champion digital icon for website use and recruitment purposes
  • Promotional e-toolkit with announcement email and newsletter content, sample social media messaging and images, a press release template and more
  • Recognition on the Association’s diabetes.org website
  • Local acknowledgment of Health Champions on social media channels

There are three award cycles each year. The designation term is one year.
