Health professionals are important stakeholders in health and nutrition and share our vested interest at ODPHP in protecting the health of all Americans. We know that healthy eating and physical activity are some of the most powerful tools we have to prevent chronic diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. ODPHP developed a toolkit for health professionals to help share key messages from the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines with patients and clients.
