Overview

The aim of the HDS-CDTR is to actively foster and support translational research in diabetes within health care delivery systems affiliated with the Health Care System Research Network (HCSRN) and the University of California San Francisco.

This Center addresses three translational research core areas to improve diabetes care:

  • Health Care Disparities
  • Diabetes and Obesity Prevention
  • Health Information Technology Interventions
  • Safety Net National Resource Core

 

Collaborating Sites

The HDS-CDTR sites represent delivery systems covering almost 5 million enrollees and more than 300,000 members with diabetes mellitus, and our affiliated Health Care Systems Research Network.
