'Estimating a population's baseline risk of disease is a cornerstone of modern health planning. This report estimates Canadians' future risk of developing diabetes based, for the first time, on current levels of obesity and other diabetes risk factors in the population.'  (excerpt from the ICES Investigative Report - see link below)

Diabetes has been described as one of the most important threats to the health of people in developed countries.  What is the baseline risk for diabetes in Canada?  How is baseline risk used in health planning?  Comparing high-risk to population strategies of diabetes prevention.  What are the implications for creating healthier communities?

Author Douglas G. Manuel will provide an overview of the report as well as some insight into how practitioners, policy/decision makers and researchers can make use of this information.
Discussions will focus on population risk and implications for different preventive strategies.
