The University of North Carolina Center for Diabetes Translation Research to Reduce Health Disparities (CDTR) is a consortium of institutions across North Carolina that aims to reduce diabetes-related disparities by providing resources and support to foster type 2 translational research in North Carolina and beyond. The Center will serve as a hub to help researchers identify, refine, and implement best practices for translating type 2 diabetes research into practice both in North Carolina and nationally. The Center will catalyze further prevention and treatment of diabetes and related conditions by providing unique resources to evaluate type 2 evidence-based interventions adapted for target communities and practices.
The Center is organized around three Cores and three Programs:
- Community Connections Core
- Health Information Technology Core
- Literacy and Numeracy Core
- Enrichment Program
- Pilot and Feasibility Funding Program
- Research Navigation Program
