Current Projects

Clinicians who practice Lifestyle Medicine report that lifestyle changes achieve substantial benefits for individuals diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, including the normalization of blood glucose without the use of medication. As a key component of an upcoming campaign to build awareness for the power of Lifestyle Medicine in treating and sometimes reversing type 2 diabetes, ACLM’s Type 2 Diabetes Remission Task Force is soliciting case reports for a series collection on this outcome and to explore commonalities across practitioners. This research study has been approved by the University of New England's IRB.
