¡Bienvenidos!

Welcome to the Diabetes/Metabolic Special Interest Group (SIG),

We are excited about your interest in joining and continuing working in this group. The SIG meets on the third Monday of the month at 2 pm to discuss and generate ideas for analyses pertaining to diabetes mellitus, pre-diabetes, and other cardiometabolic risk factors. The SIG members come from different disciplines, including clinical endocrinology, psychology, epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, nutrition, and others. We have members at different career stages and welcome presentation proposals for our calls from members across the career spectrum. The SIG has been a great forum for early and mid-career investigators to discuss their manuscript proposals and ideas and to receive feedback from the SIG leadership and membership.

We are particularly interested in supporting early and mid-career investigators who are interested in using HCHS/SOL data to support the development and testing of translational interventions for diabetes prevention and control. Members of this SIG who are interested in this research can receive additional consultation from the faculty of the New York Regional Center for Diabetes Translational Research. Dr. Gonzalez can facilitate such additional consultations, which may go beyond the scope of our focus on HCHS/SOL data, to the discussion of grant proposals and study design, on an as-needed basis. See: https://www.einstein.yu.edu/centers/diabetes-translational-research .

Participants in the SIG calls should acknowledge the support of the New York Regional Center for Diabetes Translation Research and our Latino Network for Diabetes Translation Research by noting the NIDDK grant number: P30 DK111022.

We look forward to your joining us in our monthly calls. New ideas are welcome!
