The Learning Process:
Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 30 minutes.
- Describe the evidence supporting plant-based dietary patterns for diabetes prevention and treatment.
- Explain why tight glycemic control achieved solely with medication might not be beneficial for some patients.
- Discuss mechanisms for improving insulin resistance and beta cell function with plant-based nutrition.
Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.
Recorded live at the 2019 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.
