Sustainable weight loss after GLP-1s: First of its kind study shows new possibilities

Thursday, March 14 @11am PT / 2pm ETRegister to attend live or get the replay

A first of its kind research study from Virta Health shows sustained weight loss after deprescribing GLP-1s among a real world population. 

This new study, just published in Diabetes Therapy, shows that patients enrolled in Virta maintained the beneficial effects on blood sugar and weight loss, even after GLP-1 medication were removed, making a “lifetime” prescription unnecessary.

This is a landmark study for health plan and benefits leaders looking for cost effective and sustainable alternatives to contain spiraling GLP-1 costs. 

Join us to learn more, including:

  • Overview of the research and what the findings mean for you
  • How to use this new research to inform your GLP-1 coverage strategy
  • The role lifestyle programs can play in containing Rx costs and supporting member choice and satisfaction
