Diabetes-Obesity ScienceServ

Sarah Howard's son developed type 1 diabetes at 23 months of age. Here he is with his grandpa, wearing his insulin pump, at age 2.

This ScienceServ explores the emerging science linking environmental chemicals and other environmental/societal factors to the development and management of all types of diabetes, of obesity, and of metabolic syndrome. We do this by distributing influential research articles, fostering discussion spaces, and creating collaborative opportunities among researchers, advocates, patients, health care providers, public health professionals and others working on diabetes and obesity related issues. CHE Partnership calls feature new research about environmental contributors to these health endpoints and innovative efforts to apply the science towards disease reduction and prevention.

The CHE Diabetes-Obesity ScienceServ is coordinated by Sarah Howard, MS, creator of Diabetes and the Environment. See the CHE spotlight on Sarah.

CHE does not take a stance on specific legislation nor sign petitions and the like. Rather, we investigate and discuss the scientific foundation for more health-protective policies in a civil tone. For posting guidelines and etiquette, please see our CHEtiquette.
