Why Food For Life
Diabetes is on the rise everywhere and Turkey is no exception.
Yet many people are unaware that type 2 diabetes is largely a disease of over-nutrition and sedentary lifestyles.
Our program aims to show you that type 2 diabetes can be prevented, and complications can often be avoided or treated with a change in lifestyle.
Who should join
Anyone can register but the program is targeted towards Turkish speaking adults located in Turkey or
abroad who currently have type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, a family history, or risk factors for developing diabetes. In addition,
we welcome Turkish health care professionals who want to learn the basics of plant-based nutrition for preventing and treating diabetes.
The program will be delivered simultaneously in English & Turkish.
