We’re taking the fight to COVID-19
As part of JoinCareTeam’s mission, we prioritize closing the care gap in times of need. And we’ve never faced greater urgency to make quality care more accessible than during the COVID-19 global pandemic. Especially when you consider …
- In the U.S. alone, 1.04 million people have died of COVID-19.
- In Iowa, nearly 10,000 people have died from the disease.

One of the easiest ways to stop the spread of COVID-19 is to get vaccinated.
5 reasons to get vaccinated against COVID-19
|1.||It’s proven to be safe and effective.|
|2.||It reduces your/your loved ones’ risk of being hospitalized and developing any long-term COVID-19 symptoms.|
|3.||It helps keep children and teens from getting seriously ill if they do contract COVID-19, and also relieves extra strain on families (childcare, school and activities).|
|4.||Unvaccinated people aged 50 or older are 14x more likely to die from COVID-19 compared to people who are fully vaccinated (primary series + two or more boosters).|
|5.||Even if you’ve already had COVID-19, vaccines can help give you added protection from new emerging variants.|
Diabetes + COVID-19: A dangerous pair
Across the U.S., more than 30 million people have diabetes, and one in four of them don’t know it. Those people are four times more likely to develop serious symptoms of COVID-19. However, with a well-managed diabetes plan, patients are at less risk of getting seriously ill from COVID-19.
JoinCareTeam helps people better manage diabetes through Remote Patient Monitoring, a proven and evidence-based solution that:
- Reduces visits to in-person clinics.
- Provides convenient care from home.
- Tailors a plan specifically to fit the individual’s needs.
- Understand the long-term effects of COVID-19.
- See how a Diabetes Prevention Program can help you prevent and delay diabetes. Local community organizations, like Polk County in Iowa, are making this available right now.
- Free video webinars like ‘Coping with Diabetes’ and ‘Diabetes & COVID-19 Vaccine’
