Facts & Figures: Diabetes in Oregon
- HB3486 Report - Strategic Plan to Slow the Rate of Diabetes in Oregon (pdf 6MB) - The 2007 Oregon Legislature approved and Governor Kulongoski signed House Bill 3486, which declared an emergency related to diabetes and obesity. The bill directed the Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) to develop by 2009 a strategic plan to start to slow the rate of diabetes caused by obesity and other environmental factors by 2010. The plan was to identify actions, including funding and statutory recommendations, that would reduce morbidity and mortality from diabetes by 2015. The plan was developed through a strategic planning process organized and staffed by the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section and Office of Family Health of the Oregon Public Health Division.
Reports and Guidelines
The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has been actively involved in the development and dissemination of diabetes care standards, guidelines, and related documents for many years. These statements are published in one or more of the Association's professional journals. This supplement contains the latest update of ADA's major position statement, “Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes,” which contains all of the Association's key recommendations. In addition are selected position statements on certain topics not adequately covered in the “Standards.” ADA hopes that this is a convenient and important resource for all health care professionals who care for people with diabetes.
This report is a reference presenting the most recent data on physical activity, nutrition, overweight and obesity in Oregon. This fifth edition provides up-to-date information on each topic through the lens of basic demographics such as age, sex, education, income, and body weight status.
