Diabetes Condition Resources

You have access to two diabetes programs, offered through Omada and Virta. 1) prevention for prediabetes and other obesity-related risks through Omada and 2) type 2 diabetes reversal through Virta.

Omada is a prevention program for those with prediabetes and other obesity-related risks. You must be at least 18 years of age or older and have a Body Mass Index (BMI) equal to or greater than 25 to participate. The program helps you lose weight, build healthy habits and reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

  • Omada is a personalized digital program for people with risk factors for certain chronic diseases. It’s designed to help you reach your health goals, one step at a time.
  • You’ll learn how to apply meaningful changes around eating, activity, sleep and stress, and then focus on sustaining those behaviors for a year and beyond.
  • Omada takes a holistic approach to your health, rooted in behavior change, that addresses specific needs. They provide the right personalized content, devices and coaching for you, leveraging the ongoing relationship and knowledge of health history to deliver support that’s highly tailored.
  • You will be asked to complete a 1-minute risk screener. If you’re at risk for an obesity-related chronic disease, you’re eligible for the program at no cost to you and can apply on the spot.
  • Weight is the largest modifiable risk factor when it comes to chronic disease prevention and is part of the inclusion criteria for participation in the Omada program. While Omada's prevention program (and the CDC's Diabetes Prevention Program) focuses on a healthy lifestyle to reduce risk factors, there is a component that focuses on weight loss and weight management. For this reason, in order to be eligible for Omada, an individual must have a BMI equal to or greater than 25.

Virta is a clinically proven type 2 diabetes reversal treatment that can help you get off your diabetes medication, lose weight and reduce your blood sugar and A1c. When you are on Virta you get:

  • Medical supervision from a physician-lead care team
  • Unlimited 1:1 health coaching
  • Diabetes testing supplies like meters, strips and more delivered right to your door
  • Mobile app for tracking biomarkers like weight, ketones and glucose
  • A wide variety of curated resources, like recipes, food lists and meal plans
  • Nutrition education program, including videos, games and guides
  • Access to a private online patient community

Sysco covers 100% of the cost of Virta, for all associates and dependents enrolled in a Sysco-sponsored national medical plan with type 2 diabetes.

We’ll have a panel of leading diabetes and infectious disease experts to discuss what we know and don't know about COVID-19 and how those living with diabetes can help reduce their risk.

Musculoskeletal Resources

Taking precautions is top of mind right now. The Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization are encouraging the use of “telehealth” services or virtual care as a measure to prevent spreading COVID-19 (coronavirus).

If you need to see a physical therapist but want to skip the doctor’s office or hospital, now’s the time to learn more about virtual physical therapy through Physera. Get the details.
