Research & Evidence Medical research has shown that Type 2 Diabetes is highly preventable based on healthy lifestyle habits including adequate exercise, a healthy diet, minimal alcohol consumption, and adequate access to healthcare . On the other hand, other studies have shown that healthy lifestyle promotion programs are not highly effective in improving health outcomes when there are underlying issues of severe structural inequality.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
