- The rate of new cases of diabetes among children and adolescents has increased.
- The first national prediabetes awareness campaign was launched to encourage people to find out their risk. More than 1 million have completed the prediabetes risk test.
- New diabetes resources have been developed to help employers, health insurers, and states.
