The rate of people with Type 2 diabetes is growing at an alarming pace in Canada. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 2.7 million Canadians have diabetes and this is expected to rise to 4.2 million by 2020. PHO’s Dr. Laura Rosella is investigating ways to address this critical issue from a broad population health perspective. Rosella has developed tools that calculate the risk of diabetes in a given population, to help decision-makers and program planners create and implement diabetes reduction strategies in their communities.
