Should physicians and researchers, policy makers or the public want to know about diabetes in Minnesota, or available health care options, it's now just a click away. The Minnesota Health Atlas is an online series of maps showing county-by-county data, focused to help the state's diabetic population. It is a unique resource, not available elsewhere in the country.
The publicly accessible resource was created and is maintained by the Decade of Discovery in Diabetes, a major initiative of the Minnesota Partnership for Biotechnology and Medical Genomics. The goal of the Decade of Discovery is to prevent, optimally treat, and ultimately cure type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The partnership includes Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota, and the State of Minnesota.
The American Diabetes Association recognizes November as American Diabetes Month. Learn more about the diagnosis of diabetes and monitoring of the diabetic patient with the Mayo Medical Laboratories resources below:
