Current Research Projects
  • Natural Experiments for Translation in Diabetes 2.0 (NEXTD-2) Study
    The NEXTD-2 study uses the collective input of the partner network to examine the effect of major population-targeted policies and interventions on diabetes prevention and control, and evaluate the circumstances that guide the evolution of policies and programs to improve diabetes care and prevention. NEXTD-2 is a follow-up to the NEXT-D study that was mandated by health care legislation to evaluate health policies and interventions used by health care systems, businesses, and communities to reduce diabetes risk, complications, and health inequalities across broad segments of the US population.
