Prediabetes is a growing public health concern. There is a lack of research about the influence of mental health on the transition from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes. Though theory and breaking research suggest that mental health might play an important role in the transition from prediabetes to type 2 diabetes, this is a very new field of research. Therefore, we are holding a
Conference on Prediabetes and Mental Health
on November 12 & 13, 2015
at McGill University and the Douglas Mental Health University Institute
in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
to inform and link together researchers, stake holders, and policy-makers interested in mental health and prediabetes.
The first day of the conference will focus on knowledge exchange (results from national and international research studies) and the second day (half-day) will focus on the identification of research priorities, including roundtable discussions with researchers and decision-makers/stakeholders.
This conference is sponsored by a Planning and Dissemination Grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
