The updated Dietary Guidelines for Americans provide health professionals, including lifestyle coaches, with the latest evidence-based nutrition science. While the Guidelines provide a public health framework to advance population health, this new way of talking about healthy eating can be activated within a diabetes prevention program. Like PreventT2, the Guidelines provide a flexible framework that can be customized to meet participants personal preferences, cultural traditions, and financial means.

Through this 1.5 CE webinar, lifestyle coaches will learn strategies to help their program participants make changes to their overall eating patterns by taking small steps. By integrating research with real-world coaching experience, this webinar helps coaches advance their skills so that program participants can make every bite count!
