Wellness Logo

At PITT OHIO, our most significant resource is our people, so we've extended our mission to be People Driven beyond the workplace. In 2007, PITT OHIO initiated a company-wide wellness program in an effort to encourage our employees to Eat Right, Be Fit and Live Well.

The goal of the program is to improve our employees' health and safety. In order to allow each employee the opportunity to perform to his or her greatest potential, we take care of our people. And in turn – our employees take exceptional care of our customers.

Diabetes

Glucose, a basic form of sugar, travels through the bloodstream to provide the body’s cells with energy. The body usually tightly regulates the amount of glucose that is circulating in the bloodstream. People with diabetes or pre-diabetes have high levels of blood glucose resulting from defects in insulin production, insulin action, or both. Regular medical check ups and a healthy lifestyle can dramatically lower the risk of developing diabetes or complications from diabetes.

Diabetes is the leading public health crisis of the 21st century, and it will continue to grow at epidemic proportions. Many people who have diabetes don’t even know it. Whether you have diabetes or want to prevent it, simple lifestyle changes can help you stay healthy. Take action today to control your risk tomorrow. If you have diabetes, call the Member Services number on the back of your Highmark ID card for information on home blood glucose monitors.
