The National Diabetes Education Program The National Diabetes Education Program is a federally funded program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and includes over 200 partners at the federal, state, and local levels, working together to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with diabetes.
http://www.Diabetesatwork.org Diabetesatwork.org can help businesses and managed care companies to assess the impact of diabetes in the workplace, and provide intuitive information to help employees manage their diabetes and take steps toward reducing risks for related complications, such as heart disease.
Making Systems Changes for Better Diabetes Care Is a National Diabetes Education Program website that provides information, models, links, resources and tools to help health care professionals.
Council for the Advancement of Diabetes Research and Education (CADRE) Launched in 2001, CADRE is a nonprofit (501c3) organization committed to reducing the devastating complications of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes through achievement of tight metabolic control. To achieve this goal, CADRE provides health care professionals with scientific information and educational programs to enable them to manage and empower their patients with diabetes. All CADRE programs are conceived and developed by CADRE’s esteemed Advisory Board of 17 prominent diabetologists.
CADRE programs support, highlight, and promote practical guidelines for patient education and management as well as cutting-edge research in diabetes pathophysiology and treatment. CADRE resources are available free of charge.

Clinical Endocrinology Clinical Endocrinology publishes papers and reviews which focus on the practical aspects of clinical endocrinology, such as protocols for investigation of endocrine disorders, imaging in endocrinology and the clinical application of molecular endocrinology. It also features reviews, current therapy papers and cases of the month.Clinical Endocrinology is essential reading not only for those engaged in endocrinological research but also for those involved primarily in clinical practice.
Reviews in Endocrine & Metabolic Disorders Reviews in Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders will be an international journal dedicated to students, clinicians and researchers involved in the broad area of endocrinology and metabolism. This field of medicine and biology is rapidly advancing and a major challenge for all of us is to keep abreast of the advances in the field.
Journal of Neuroendocrinology At a time of rapid advance in the neurosciences and endocrine sciences,neuroendocrinologists are in the fortunate position of having systems which can utilise these advances and apply them to a variety of endocrine, behavioural, electrophysiological and clinical studies. Journal of Neuroendocrinology remains at the forefront in reporting these developments. The Journal publishes papers dealing with invertebrate, vertebrate and clinical systems.
The Science Advisory Board The Science Advisory Board has been formed to bridge the gap between end-users and their vendors. We have, therefore, set out to create a forum where end-users and vendors can interact anonymously and benefit from improved dialogue and communication. The Science Advisory Board provides the means to do so in a relaxed, non-threatening way that Board members will find both professionally and personally regarding.
The journal of Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism The journal of Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism aims to provide a forum for publication of clinical and experimental pharmacology studies related to diabetes, obesity and metabolism, including evaluations of new glucose and weight-lowering drugs, new therapeutic developments in the management and prevention of diabetic complications, e.g.growth factors and biotechnology products for foot ulcers, and clinical trials involving established medicines, e.g. optimal treatment of hypertension, lipids or infection in the diabetic population.
Growth Hormone & IGF Research Growth Hormone & IGF Research is a print and World-Wide-Web forum for research on the regulation of growth in humans, animals, tissues and cells. It publishes articles on all aspects of growth-promoting and growth-inhibiting hormones and factors, with particular emphasis on insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and growth hormone. This reflects the increasing importance of growth hormone and IGFs in clinical medicine and in the treatment of diseases.
Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism In practical paperback format, each 200 page topic-based issue of Baillière's Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism will provide a comprehensive review of current clinical practice and thinking within the specialties of endocrinology and metabolism.
UNC Diabetes Care Center The purpose of our web page reflects the purpose of our Center, which is to provide affordable, quality healthcare, to be an educational resource, and to engage in research to find better ways of controlling diabetes and minimizing its complications. Our site includes information about our clinic, about self-care for individuals with diabetes,about exercise and nutrition (including some recipes), about our educational programs, and information on our research studies. Our research studies look at a variety of different areas that can impact people with diabetes including cholesterol, diabetic complications such as neuropathy, oral diabetic medications, and blood sugar monitoring. Readers are welcome to contact us for additional information about anything on our site. Also, since it is not possible to provide all information that our web page readers may be interested in, we also have a list of links to other resources.
