The group conducts diabetes prevention research based on a health-promoting approach. This means that we seek to promote health and well-being in a broad sense, and that we have a special focus on populations and settings where there is a great potential for prevention in relation to diabetes and other chronic diseases.
Our goal is to contribute research-based knowledge about interventions that are implemented in practice and that have a documented effect on health, well-being and social conditions.
This requires close collaboration with a wide range of actors: decision-makers, professionals across organizations and sectors, civil society and, not least, citizens. Our research is based on participatory and practice-oriented approaches.
