Investigate the data supporting plant-based diets for diabetes management and why tight glycemic control achieved with medication alone might not be beneficial for some patients. 

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.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, and dietitians. 

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


  • 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.
