BCBS – Omada Program-2020 Expanded

We’re excited to share some good news: Omada’s digital health program has expanded to help even more of you reach your goals. Now, in addition to losing weight and building healthy habits that last, Omada could help you stay on top of your type 2 diabetes.

Omada combines ongoing human support with the latest technology to help you make small, meaningful changes to the way you eat, move, sleep, and manage stress. You’ll get:

  • A professional health coach for support and guidance
  • A connected scale for seamless tracking (to keep for good!)
  • Weekly online lessons to educate and empower you
  • A small online community for real-time motivation

If you’re living with type 2 diabetes, you’ll also get:

  • A connected blood glucose meter and as many test strips as you need
  • Coaching from a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE)
  • Personalized feedback to help you make sense of your blood glucose readings
  • Diabetes-specific support from your coach, peers, and lessons
  • Strategies to help you manage (or potentially reduce) medications  

 

If you or your adult family members are at risk for type 2 diabetes or heart disease, or are living with type 2 diabetes, and enrolled in our Blue Cross® and Blue Shield® of Minnesota health plan, Minnesota Healthcare Consortium will cover the entire cost of the program—a $650+ value.

Giving Tree 2019 Update from WAH

All,

 

Thank you to everyone involved in the Giving Tree this year.  With your donations we were able to drop off 232 wrapped gifts for 71 children at DVHHS last Friday.  Our WAH Auxiliary and Staff wrapped just shy of 200 gifts a few days prior to help us make the drop-off window.  I’ve been assured the gifts will be distributed in time for Christmas, so kids in need in both Cottonwood and Jackson counties will have presents to open on Christmas Day. Thank you all for taking part this year, it is very much appreciated by all involved.  Please see the attached card signed by DVHHS, who wanted to show their appreciation to everyone who participated in the event.

 

A Special Thank You to those taking part outside of WAH:

Chelsie Carlson and staff at the City of Windom office

Drew Hage, City of Windom EDA

Tim Hogan, City of Windom Recreation Director

John Nelson, City of Windom Liquor Store Manager

Josh Sammons and his staff at Sanford Windom & Mt Lake clinics

Marco Medina, Medina Martial Arts
