Are you struggling to keep your Type 2 diabetes under control? If so, your Beneﬁt Fund can connect you with a fellow 1199SEIU member who is successfully managing his or her condition through our Diabetes Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program, administered by InquisitHealth. While it doesn’t replace care from your doctor, the program will give you additional support from someone who understands what you’re going through and can help you set and achieve goals to improve your health. You’ll get personalized coaching from your mentor by phone, text message reminders and check-ins, video-based educational materials sent to your smartphone and personalized healthy-eating tips from a professional nutritionist.
And if you’re successfully managing your Type 2 diabetes, you can help another 1199SEIU member by becoming a peer mentor. For more information about joining the program as either a mentor or mentee, please call (646) 893-1348.
The Diabetes Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Program is offered in partnership with InquisitHealth. This program is not intended to provide medical advice. Your interactions in the program may be tracked and recorded for continued quality improvement, ongoing training and safety purposes.
