Meet D2d Participants

D2d participants are highly motivated individuals who are shaping the future of diabetes prevention. Their participation in D2d will help researchers find better ways to prevent diabetes. D2d participants are helping define the role of vitamin D supplementation in modifying diabetes risk in people at risk for the disease. Read more about current participant’s experience with the D2d study below!

We would love to hear about your experience as a D2d participant. You can share your motivation for joining D2d, a lifestyle change you made or any other D2d related experience. If you want, you can share a picture of yourself at a D2d event or elsewhere (e.g., pose with a D2d memorabilia while on vacation). If you prefer, your name can be withheld and will not be shown with your comments.
