Published Online: Wednesday, January 1, 2003

People without diabetes miss an average of 1.7 days of work each year, but those with the disease miss about 8.3 days.

The federal government and private businesses have gotten together to create a Web site designed to help companies educate their employees about diabetes and how to manage it. The site is at www.diabetesatwork.org. It includes both assessment tools and more than 30 lesson plans and fact sheets to help promote employee diabetes education and management.
