Type 2 Diabetes Prevention Resources

Nutrition Connections is here to support your food and nutrition-related work. We recently published an article titled “Nutrition and Type 2 Diabetes Prevention” in the July 2020 edition of Hospital News. That submission inspired the development of this page as we recognize that our community – many of whom are health intermediaries – could benefit from this ‘one stop shop’ approach to reputable type 2 diabetes prevention resources, such as toolkits, questionnaires, printable resources for clients, videos, and webinars.
