Driving Out Diabetes Priorities:

- Educate Utahns of all ages about diabetes and the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices, taking this message to where people learn, work, pray, and play.
- Identify people who have higher chances of developing diabetes and target this population for primary diabetes prevention strategies.
- Deliver new models of diabetes clinical care to those who already have diabetes to help people better manage their diabetes and prevent health complications.
- Invest in innovative research to discover scientific breakthroughs that will lead to improved treatments—and eventually cures—for people with diabetes in Utah and beyond.

This first meeting will help researchers identify potential collaborators. We anticipate a series of follow-up meetings, proposals for seed funding, and identification of extramural funding opportunities.
