Dr. Ackermann will review what science has taught us about the relationships between the health of more than 30 million Americans living with diabetes and more than 80 million living with “pre-diabetes” and their dietary patterns, physical activity and body mass. He will describe the basic essential components of fitness and nutrition programs that have been proven to lower blood glucose and improve other important health measures while helping many people to reduce the need for daily medications. Finally, he will highlight some important areas for innovation in both the content and formats for fitness and nutrition programing, as well as opportunities for how to sustain these programs through various forms of reimbursement currently available or emerging within the healthcare sector.
