Welcome to DiCAYA Network
The Assessing the Burden of Diabetes by Type in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults (DiCAYA) Network is a CDC-funded collaboration with Coordinating Center activities led by researchers at NYU Long Island School of Medicine and NYU Grossman School of Medicine.
We work in collaboration with the following Clinical Centers:
Indiana University–Purdue University at Indianapolis
Kaiser Permanente Southern California
Lurie Children's Hospital
PEDSnet/Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
University of Colorado Denver
University of Florida
University of South Carolina
The primary goal of the network is to modernize diabetes surveillance efforts to capitalize on large-volume, electronic health record data streams and on recent advances in statistics and clinical informatics to provide accurate, timely, cost-effective, granular, and representative indicators of diabetes prevalence and incidence among children, adolescents and younger adults. We aim to monitor overall trends and trends within subgroups (e.g., age, sex, diabetes type, socioeconomic status, urbanicity, geographic area).
The Coordinating Center and Clinical Centers in the Network all bring strong expertise in diabetes phenotyping using EHR data and surveillance methods to this initiative. For more information about each site and their role in the Network, please click below.
