InSource partners in global diabetes study
InSource is a research partner in a global initiative to reduce the impact of type 2 diabetes (DM2) in urban settings. Funded by the Danish pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, Cities Changing Diabetes (CCD) is studying DM2 in seven cities worldwide, including Vancouver, to find ways to improve prevention and care for the disease.  The Vancouver project was launched on World Diabetes Day, November 14th, and recently profiled in a front-page article in the Vancouver Sun.  
The CCD initiative is designed to reveal the extent of preventable diabetes and to implement intervention strategies co-designed with local communities using a collective impact systems approach.  Mapping the prevalence of DM2 using existing data, InSource found about 60,000 people in Vancouver live with the disease, representing a prevalence rate of 9.6 per cent. However, only 77 percent of Vancouverites with DM2 have been diagnosed. Using existing databases, further work will reveal how many people in the city diagnosed with DM2 are receiving treatment and achieving optimal outcomes
