Project: Other

Project Details

Description

Adopting a healthy lifestyle and preventing lifestyle-related diseases is challenging in the current society. Our objective is to empower individuals with increased risk for type 2 diabetes in adopting and maintaining healthy lifestyle. We aim to achieve this by combining individual level intervention with changes in living environment to support healthy behaviors, and by identifying societal barriers and facilitators for the implementation. We will study how healthy lifestyle can be supported by individual level solutions utilizing digitalization and by altering living environment to make healthy choices preferred and easier. The effects of developed solutions on lifestyle, risk of T2D and other lifestyle-related diseases and societal costs will be examined at three hospital districts. The active cooperation with the public sector and the key actors of civic society will ensure direct integration of developed solutions into Finnish society.
