The Diabetes Prevention Initiative at Joslin Diabetes Center

Joslin Diabetes Center is excited to launch a new initiative aimed at exploring new ways to implement diabetes prevention on a national scale through education, treatment and affiliation networks. This will be an ongoing effort focused on:

  • catalyzing prevention activities;
  • engaging academic, patient advocacy, public and private sector resources; and
  • addressing cost-effective efforts to bring diabetes prevention to scale.

On July 12, 2011, Joslin convened a group of researchers, clinicians, advocates, and policymakers in Washington, D.C. to discuss how to effectively translate the best and most current evidence on diabetes prevention into practice. The discussion centered around the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) and subsequent studies that tested various translation projects in the community. The group then discussed  what would be required to operationalize the findings.
