Diabetes-Related Educational Opportunities
Evidence-based health promotion programs are interventions that are based on evidence generated by scientific studies. For these interventions, the evidence shows that the program is effective in preventing disease and improving health. These programs have gone through a research process to determine if they show the results that are intended by the program. The program results have also been published in professional scientific journals.
For example, a program designed to increase physical activity among its participants would be evaluated to measure whether or not a significant increase in physical activity actually happens after the participants complete the program.
