America is Losing Ground on Dire Diabetes Complications: Let's Turn It Around

Epidemiologic and statistical experts from the diabetes division of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) wrote an important article on the surge of diabetes complications between 2010 and 2015, largely due to lifestyle modifiable factors in the May 21, 2019 issue of JAMA. The article is a dire warning about young (age 18-44) and middle-aged (age 45-64) adults who disproportionately represented the resurgence in diabetes complications.

While work needs to continue to better understand the demographics and behaviors of subsets in these age groups, the message is that we have to do more to prevent diabetes and reach diabetic individuals who are on a collision course with serious maladies.

APH is dedicated to reversing this untoward trend – and has done so for many clients – but there is more work to do.

APH Counterpoints to Recent Workplace Wellness Study Findings

As our leadership team read the recent uChicago News article titled “Workplace wellness programs fail to improve health, study finds,” we felt compelled to share our counterpoints based on decades of experience supporting wellness and well-being programs that do drive quantifiable and significant results.

There are so many definitions of "workplace wellness" that we hope people won't over-generalize after seeing this article and study. Our clients are experiencing strong, measurable health and wellness program results due to analytics-driven proactive outreach and support.
