As more and more Americans are diagnosed with diabetes, this resource page that is provided by the Center for Disease Control will be of great help to persons with diabetes and those hoping to learn how to prevent the onset of this condition. The site includes important fact sheets (updated for the year 2002) about the increase in diabetes over the past decade and detailed explanation of the four main types of diabetes. Persons in the field of public health will appreciate the section devoted to describing the CDC's current diabetes projects they sponsor, such as the Appalachian Diabetes Prevention Program and National Diabetes Awareness Month. For persons looking for more local preventive and educational programs, a complete list of state-facilitated diabetes programs is also provided.
