What It Means to be "Powered by Silver Fern"
How WellSpark Health used the Silver Fern
Prediabetes Program to achieve outstanding
results with a hard-to-reach population.
Commercial drivers face challenging work schedules and are at
high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, which can impact their
livelihood and quality of life.
WellSpark Health coaches engaged 97 commercial drivers
in a customized, behaviorally enriched Diabetes Prevention
Program (DPP) over the course of twelve months. Using Silver
Fern’s prediabetes assessment modules, seven times more drivers
completed 22 sessions, and approximately 2x more drivers
achieved their physical activity and weight-loss goals compared to
CDC-standard Diabetes Prevention Programs.

if I’d be alive right now. Thank you!"

Participating drivers’ mean HbA1c dropped from 5.6% to 5.2%, a clinically
significant change which translates into a meaningful reduction in cost of care.
