Project Brief:

Delivering lifestyle education in workplaces with a focus on improving the worksite environment, collaborating with management, and training peers as health educators would be an innovative way to scale and translate diabetes and CVD prevention efforts. Building on our experience, we propose conducting a pre post implementation trial to assess the acceptability, feasibility, and impact of a worksite based lifestyle education program taught by trained peer educators and supplemented with changes in the worksite environment (e.g.,offering healthy options in the work canteen, creating a supportive climate for lifestyle class participation) for employees with prediabetes and diabetes at eight worksites in India. This project will use a mixed methods approach to assess the intervention and its implementation, enabling well supported recommendations for sustaining and implementing this intervention. The intervention will include a broader range of individuals [selected by glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) testing] who could benefit from lifestyle change than have been included in previous translational research studies, namely both individuals with prediabetes and those with unmedicated diabetes. This population represents the larger community of individuals at risk of developing diabetes related outcomes and complications.
