1. CCD Rounds: Sharing knowledge and scaling up action to bend the curve on diabetes

CCD Rounds

Cities Changing Diabetes is pleased to bring you the CCD Rounds: bi-monthly topic-specific live events during 2021 that will provide inspiration for driving public health interventions. The CCD Rounds are a great opportunity to learn about diabetes and obesity prevention through real-world examples of health promotion, activities around childhood obesity and best practice policy initiatives.


This first CCD Round live event profiles Tingbjerg Changing Diabetes - a long-term community intervention initiative to promote health and prevent type 2 diabetes among high-risk population groups living in a socially deprived Copenhagen suburb.

Discover how a dynamic and versatile partnership delivers activities and projects co-created with Tingbjerg’s citizens to prevent diabetes. The case is presented by Paul Bloch from Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen. Watch recording here

This second CCD Rounds live event profiles the Faith and Diabetes initiative - a multi-faith community engagement intervention from Houston, Texas, US. Discover how diverse populations were empowered to better understand diabetes awareness, prevention and management through their trusted faith communities.

Tune in on 29 April when Stuart Nelson, Vice President at the Institute for Spirituality and Health, Texas Medical Center, will guide us through an initiative that shows the power of co-creating directly with community stakeholders. Watch the recording here
