Every 21 seconds someone in the US is diagnosed with diabetes with 90-95% of those cases being Type 2. Diabetes has a profound impact on our healthcare system and can lead to comorbidities such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, nerve damage, and more.

The good news: doctors recommend diet and exercise as interventions to help those with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D).  Though they provide nutritional guidance via certified diabetes educators and registered dieticians that study T2D and diet as interventions, there is little support on what and how to exercise and beyond 30 mins or daily walking or exercise.

This course is designed to help fitness healthcare professionals better understand the science, research, applications, and integrations of different types of exercise and how they support clients and patients with T2D. The course will also address behavior change support to provide strategies to confidently and comfortably integrate exercise into daily and weekly practice.
