The National Changing Diabetes Program has released a new website called DiabetesXChange.
The new site will serve as an online clearinghouse for new initiatives in diabetes management, prevention and care throughout the United States . The website will help to centralize the diabetes community, and allow them to share information and learn about new diabetes programs.
The programs included will not necessarily be large-scale governmental projects, but will focus right in on community-based initiatives. Dana Haza, the Senior Director of the National Changing Diabetes Program at Novo Nordisk, said: “There are a significant number of innovative diabetes initiatives underway across the nation that are showing positive results; what’s missing is a central location where this information can be accessed and shared. We created DiabetesXChange.org to fill this gap. We want people who care about changing diabetes to visit DiabetesXChange.org to read about innovative interventions and lessons learned, and to contribute more initiatives to the site.”
The website will be sponsored by Novo Nordisk, one of the foremost diabetes companies in the world. Donna rice, the president of the American Association of Diabetes Educators said: “We have more than 20 million people in the U.S. living with diabetes and this number is on the rise. I commend the National Changing Diabetes Program for creating an online resource to showcase programs and interventions working to improve the lives of people with diabetes.”
