The time to act is now.
The Diabesity Institute has a crucial role to play in this vital mission that can turn the tide on the diabesity epidemic.
- Medical practitioners need comprehensive training so they can better serve their patients suffering from, or at risk for, obesity and type 2 diabetes.
- We must support primary research to broaden our understanding of what is driving the increasing prevalence of metabolic disorders.
- The public needs to be educated about prevention strategies and the science of metabolism in an effort to reduce stigma, which is a significant part of the suffering.
