Back to Basics: Behavior Change Networks

December 13, 2012

One way to get back to basics in 2013 is to focus on behavior change that positively impacts health. The World Health Organization estimates that in excess of 346 million people worldwide are diabetic and without intervention this number is likely to more than double.

This week, IDEO alums Adrian James and Sean Duffy launched a digital health product designed to help people overcome barriers to better health. Called Prevent, the 16-week personalized program supports people at risk of type 2 diabetes in reaching their daily diet and exercise goals in a group setting.
