Overview

The Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) is a part of the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The division has about 100 employees in Atlanta, Georgia, plus several public health advisors in the field.

CDC has had a diabetes division since 1977. In 1989, the name of the division was changed to Division of Diabetes Translation, meaning that the division translates science into daily practice. In our applied or "translation" research, we take information from clinical trials and incorporate it into clinical and public health practices.

The division does not support the direct provision of services, but facilitates the efficient, fair, and effective availability of these services to all Americans affected by diabetes. The division does not do laboratory research and does not routinely fund individual investigators.

Goals

  • Prevent diabetes.
  • Prevent complications, disabilities, and burden associated with diabetes.
  • Eliminate diabetes-related health disparities.
  • Maximize organizational capability to achieve DDT goals.
