Description:
"Division of Diabetes Translation's (DDT's) mission is to eliminate the preventable burden of diabetes through leadership, research, programs, and polices that translate science into practice. In 2001, staff at DDT wanted to explore the impact of diabetes on aging-related outcomes. We assembled a small panel of experts in aging to explore the diabetes-and-aging issue. This group produced a white paper focused on four areas: surveillance, applied public health research, programs, and policy change and development. From this initial effort, the DDT formed the Diabetes and Aging Work Group (DAWG) to highlight the health issues of older adults with diabetes. In addition to conducting scientific research and communications, the DAWG chose one programmatic focus: preserving physical function in older adults. To further that end, this Reference Guide of Physical Activity Programs for Older Adults: A Resource for Planning Interventions was created as a programmatic tool." - p. v
