It offers a selection of current, high-quality resources for professionals (health professionals, program administrators, and researchers) about diabetes prevalence, diagnosis, management, type 2 diabetes prevention, and pediatric diabetes research. Separate sections present resources about medications and monitoring and nutrition. Separate briefs point to resources for families and schools. This professional resource guide will be updated regularly.
