Background

Diabetes is pandemic. It is estimated that 415 million people globally are living with diabetes, yet for the most part, it is preventable. Our goal is to equip people with the tools, support, education and confidence to take control of their own health and prevent diabetes.

Opportunity

The opportunity exists for primary care to prescribe self-management programs combining peer support, clinical support, behavior change tools and education to help prevent the onset of type-2 diabetes.

Solution

BetaMe is a 16-week digital health program providing peer support, health coaching, engaging resources and tracking tools to help people make positive lifestyle changes.


The BetaMe program was initially delivered as a pilot in partnership with Pinnacle Midlands Health Network. The results of the pilot shows that BetaMe is a cost-effective intervention that increases self-efficacy and health literacy with 78% or participants no longer with pre-diabetes at the end of the 16-week program.

Online Peer Community

Peer support provides encouragement and motivation as participants share experiences with each other.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the BetaMe family… I have had many laughs and been so inspired by these wonderful generous people.”
