New Beginnings Discussion Guide

New Beginnings was developed to help diabetes educators and support group leaders lead discussions about the emotional side of living with diabetes. It is focused on helping people with diabetes and their families identify social support needs and develop goal setting, positive coping and problem solving skills. It uses the stories of people who have diabetes to facilitate discussions about learning to manage the emotional ups and downs that come with living with diabetes.

The Road to Health Toolkit

This tool kit provides materials to start a community outreach program reinforcing the message that type 2 diabetes can be delayed or prevented. It provides resources to teach participants strategies for making healthier food choices and being more active, using culturally appropriate stories and examples.


The Road to Health Training Guide

The Road to Health Training Guide is designed for people who develop or offer training workshops and for community health workers about how to use the Road to Health Toolkit. Other health care professionals, diabetes educators, health educators, nurses, dietitians, and community educators can also be trained to use the toolkit. Click here for more information about implementing the Road to Health Toolkit.


The Road to Health Training Video is designed for "train-the-trainer" workshops for people who will provide training to others about how to use the Toolkit.


The Road to Health Evaluation Guide

The Road to Health Toolkit Evaluation Guide was created to help community health workers (CHWs), diabetes educators and health educators in their evaluation efforts and for those who want to know (1) how the Road to Health Toolkit is making a difference in the lives of their participants who are at risk for type 2 diabetes, and (2) how well they have conducted their own educational activities while using the Road to Health Toolkit.
