The paradigm of care for people with diabetes is shifting! But not fast enough. It’s time to turn this epidemic around. This presentation will discuss news you can use to do more than “manage” type 2 diabetes. We’ll discuss what is happening with the U.S. Dietary Guidelines, and review a draft of a new Bill of Rights for people with or at risk for diabetes, under development by the American College of Lifestyle Medicine.
