Type 2 Diabetes and Children

Speaker:
Frank Vinicor, Director of the Division of Diabetes Translation, CDC

Program Description:
The United States is witnessing an alarming increase in the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in youth, strongly correlated to the diabetes and obesity epidemics that are sweeping the nation in the adult population. Health experts have particular concerns about the long-term health consequences of developing diabetes at such an early stage in life. The greatest challenge in dealing with this problem lies in translating known science into practice and prevention and in tailoring interventions to this newly recognized population at risk.

Objectives:
As a result of this program, participants will be able to:

  • describe the at least two types of intervention to combat type 2 diabetes in children.
