Diabetes Ten City Challenge


Diabetes Ten City Challenge (DTCC), conducted by the APhA Foundation with support from GlaxoSmithKline, demonstrated that self-insured employers can improve recognized standards of diabetes care and reduce health care expenditures when employees, dependents and retirees meet with pharmacists who help them manage their diabetes. 

People with diabetes who were in the program an average of 14.8 months showed significant improvements in clinical measures including hemoglobin A1C (blood glucose), LDL cholesterol and blood pressure. DTCC provides an opportunity to transform health care delivery in local communities and drive fundamental change in the U.S. health care system by encouraging employers to invest in helping their employees manage all chronic conditions, reducing health care costs and improving patient outcomes.
