The Food for Life: Diabetes Initiative is the plant-based nutrition and cooking program for type 2 diabetes prevention and treatment developed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.


The intended audience for this program is people with diabetes, prediabetes, a family history or risk factors for developing diabetes, and their adult family members.


It is also designed to introduce health care professionals to the basics of plant-based nutrition for preventing and treating diabetes.


Join us for 8 weeks in which we will educate and empower you to not only improve your diabetes, but possibly achieve remission and even reversal through the food on your plate.


Each class features a video lecture, group discussion, and cooking demonstration.  

Participants will be equipped with simple, easy-to-replicate recipes each week to help you take control of your health.
