DPH: Connecticut Diabetes Surveillance System

Connecticut Diabetes Surveillance System

Public health tracking of diabetes is an essential part of reducing the disease burden in Connecticut, identifying high-risk groups, formulating sensible health care policy, and evaluating our state's progress in preventing this disease.
The objective of the Connecticut Diabetes Surveillance System (CDSS) is to provide timely and relevant information about diabetes and its complications in Connecticut, as well as related risk factor information. CDSS provides support to the Connecticut Diabetes Prevention and Control Program, a CDC-funded program within the Connecticut Department of Public Health. The links below provide current information regarding Connecticut deaths and hospitalizations due to diabetes and diabetes-related conditions, diabetes prevalence data, and related reports.
