Diabetes is an important health concern particularly if you are a person with diabetes or at high risk for developing it; have loved one with diabetes; or are a health care provider or public health practitioner. Diabetes is serious, common and costly, yet it is controllable. The New Jersey Diabetes Prevention and Control Program seeks to reduce the health impacts of diabetes by:
- Increasing awareness of diabetes and its complications
- Improving the quality of diabetes care and access to care
- Developing partnerships and increasing community involvement to address diabetes issues
- Uutilizing data to better apply resources and improve health outcomes
