Diabetes and Obesity Epidemiology, Public Health, Community Programs

The US spends $245 billion annually on diabetes medical care (the majority) and lost productivity. Diabetes is predicted to affect as many as 30% of children by the time they reach 30 years of age. Clearly, preventing and reversing this “diabesity” epidemic is a national priority. Mount Sinai DOMI researchers are at the forefront of this effort, with public health and community based initiatives driven by the Disease Prevention and Public Health Institute.
