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:

  • Geisinger Clinic

  • 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.
