The number of Canadians living with diabetes is at an all-time high as are the consequential healthcare costs. A scalable solution to this public health crisis is needed. The aim of this research project is to evaluate Transform, a digital health program created by Blue Mesa Health. The program is designed to prevent diabetes by helping people adopt healthier lifestyles. By analyzing existing Transform participant metrics and program outcomes, the intern will seek to understand the nature of the programs impact on diabetes prevention. A secondary evaluation of the potential return on investment from diabetes prevention will also be carried out. Blue Mesa Health seeks to develop a strong research portfolio on Transform in order to provide a high-quality intervention that is both effective and competitive. BMH has plans to begin serving Canadians in 2019. Establishing collaborative partnerships in the Canadian academic arena is valuable to the growth and success of the company.
