HUB 1 Partners
Gestational Diabetes Initiative began with three national partners: Divisions of Diabetes Translation and Reproductive Health of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Women’s Health Group with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, and the Association of Maternal Child Health Programs. This initiative explored the issues surrounding Gestational Diabetes and established that quality data was the crucial issue. The Initiative lead to the Gestational Diabetes Collaborative and the Gestational Diabetes Network.
Gestational Diabetes Collaborative is a partnership of the NACDD, Women’s Health Group, CDC Divisions of Diabetes Translation and Reproductive Health, AMCHP and multi-state and tribal entities working to improve GDM data and care. The Gestational Diabetes Collaborative supports efforts to:
· develop and implement strategies to improve the quality of routinely collected GDM data
· improve the level of awareness that women with a history of GDM and their offspring are at a substantially increased risk for future development of type 2 diabetes
· implement strategies to enhance postpartum glucose testing and follow-up. Members of the GDM Collaborative include the following state and tribal members:
Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Utah, West Virginia; Chickasaw, Choctaw and Navajo Nations; and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.
Gestational Diabetes Network is comprised of individuals and groups interested in Gestational Diabetes and who work towards improving prevention, detection, treatment, management, post-partum follow-up and education efforts.
Anyone interested in Gestational Diabetes may join the Network. The network offers quarterly continuing education through webinars and other social media venues such as our Gestational Diabetes blog.
