Abstract: Greater purpose in life (measured using a validated scale) is associated with lower rates of certain chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease and stroke. In this seminar, we will discuss the role of purpose in life in the development of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes as well as the potential to augment ongoing type 2 diabetes prevention efforts with strategies that promote greater purpose in life.
