▪️The National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom created a program called "Healthier You", where it offers a healthy habits initiative for people with Type 2 Diabetes, one of the risk diseases of NCDs that cause the death of hundreds of thousands a year. It is based on 4 pillars such as nutritional guidance, mental control that generates a conscious change in behavior, understanding the risks and support with physical activity.

▪️The "Healthier You" program offers free courses on healthy eating, emotional support and dissemination of physical activity with trained professionals, also making the program a PREVENTOR of health. It seeks to raise awareness to avoid diseases, as well as to be a tool for those who already suffer from them. It can be done online or through a group and face-to-face service.

▪️In these public policies that are promoted by the state hand in hand with nutrition associations and the fitness industry, generating in the short term an improvement in people's health and in the long term the possibility of extending years of life of individuals.
