Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death in New York. It’s also one of the biggest drivers of health care costs in the state, with annual spending of almost $22 billion, according to the American Diabetes Association. This summit will explore the cutting-edge work being done by leading New York health care providers, nonprofits, business leaders and politicians to prevent diabetes among the millions of at-risk New Yorkers and to avoid costly and debilitating complications among the 700,000 residents who already suffer from the disease.
