Joslin Diabetes Partnership to Explore Dairy's Role in Reducing Diabetes Risk
The National Dairy Council has entered into a new research and education collaboration with Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, MA -
a world class, credible, research center. This collaboration will help solidify the science that 3 daily servings of dairy, as part of a healthy diet, can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, and
dispel potential myths within the medical community about dairy's role in a healthy diet.
To kick off the partnership, New England Dairy & Food Council (NEDFC) brought 10 members of Joslin's research team to a dairy farm: Great Brook Farm State Park in Carlisle, MA. NEDFC is also supporting local research on the link between full-fat dairy and reduced diabetes risk at the University of Vermont led by Dr. Jana Kraft.
