How CDC is Using Technology to Enhance its Diabetes Prevention and Management Efforts

Diabetes presents a significant public health challenge. According to CDC’s National Diabetes Statistics Report, more than 37 million Americans have diabetes and another 96 million adults have prediabetes, putting them at high risk of progressing to type 2 diabetes and developing other serious health conditions. CDC is implementing several new innovative strategies to prevent and manage diabetes. These include efforts to modernize data collection through surveillance systems, increase use of cloud technologies, and improve public health data-sharing. CDC will discuss these strategies and highlight its work to reduce complications, disabilities, and burden associated with diabetes.
