How to Teach Healthy Habits

I volunteer each month for a wonderful free clinic. We see lots of un/underinsured patients with all kinds of medical needs. Many of the patients come in with the typical problems: diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, triglycerides, etc. Most of these problems can be greatly reduced with really simple adjustment to lifestyle. It is important to me that the clinic start sharing easy, attainable ways to improve health, apart from just prescriptions.

What health materials can you suggest to give out to patients? Anyone have some to donate? What about helpful websites in English, Spanish, Hindi, Vietnamese or Russian?

Education about healthy choices can make a huge difference for people. I'm excited to incorporate this. Please give me your ideas!
