Employer-based Diabetes Program Controls Disease

Worksite educational programs are helping control diabetes for employees, according to a study conducted at a Chicago-based employer. The study involved First Chicago National Bank of Detroit [FCN] which offered a diabetes metillus education program to its Chicago employees. Diabetes metillus is the most common disease of the endocrine system found in American workers and affects 5 percent to 10 percent of the U.S. population.
