SEGIP is pleased to offer the Prevent program to employees and their adult family members at no cost. Prevent is a 16-week online program that helps participants make small changes that can have a big impact such as losing weight, improving  health, and reducing the risk factors that lead to chronic disease like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The average participant loses 11 pounds during the 16-week program.




SEGIP members and their adult dependents are eligible.

Find out if you qualify by taking a one-minute online screener at



• 1 in 3 Americans has prediabetic symptoms, such as elevated blood sugar levels.

• 90% of those with prediabetic symptoms don’t realize they are at risk.

• Most people can decrease their risk by losing 5-7% of their weight. (For a 200-pound person, that’s 10 pounds).


Prevent guides you to better health with:

• A professional health coach to customize your program and check in daily

• A wireless scale that automatically uploads your weight to your own private page

• Weekly lessons so you understand which changes will have the biggest impact

• A small group for encouragement and support
