The Quiet Research That Led to a Resounding Success in Diabetes Prevention

"More than 86 million people, including 22 million people 65 or older, have pre-diabetes, which increases their risk of heart disease, strokes or diabetes. As we’ve watched that number grow, it has somehow felt that despite billions of dollars of research and intervention, there’s little we can do. 

That feeling shifted last week when Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the secretary of health and human services, announced that Medicare was planning to pay for lifestyle interventions focusing on diet and physical activity to prevent Type 2 diabetes. It’s an example of small-scale research efforts into health services that have worked and that have expanded to reach more people."

The DPP and a DPP investigator were named in a recent NYT article titled, "The Quiet Research That Led to a Resounding Success in Diabetes Prevention." Click here to read the full New York Times article.
