Research Projects

image of a penCDC has researched several diabetes prevention interventions that have proven effective in helping to prevent diabetes in certain populations and communities.  CDC is continuing to collaborate with local departments of health, public health partners, community-based organizations in research and also creating effective programs, in both prevention and control to help prevent further cases of diabetes. 

Surveillance, Natural History, Quality of Care, and Outcomes of Diabetes Mellitus with Onset in Childhood and Adolescence
This is a 5-year program, which is expected to provide estimates of trends in the incidence of diabetes for ages 0–19 years by type and race/ethnicity, and support research aimed at assessing the incidence of diabetes-related complications, quality of care, quality of life, and mortality by diabetes. It builds on a 10-year collaborative multicenter research project called SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth.

Natural Experiments for Translation in Diabetes (NEXT-D) Study
The overall objectives of this study are to rigorously evaluate health policies and interventions coming from health care systems, businesses, communities, and health care legislation that may reduce diabetes risk, complications, and health inequalities across broad segments of the U.S. population.
