The Coordinating Center for the Diabetes LEAD Network is based in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics within the Dornsife School of Public Health, in collaboration with the College of Computing and Informatics, at Drexel University. The Coordinating Center supports a variety of network activities, including: operations, data management and analysis, information technology development, and publications and communications, with the primary goal of facilitating a collaborative relationship across the study’s multiple sites.

Our aims include:

    1. Provide overall scientific leadership to the research project
    2. Provide overall administrative coordination to the network, in order to maximize research productivity, policy relevance, and ensure attainment of the overall project goal
    3. Oversee data management to ensure data collected are of highest quality
    4. Create an environment that promotes and facilities collaboration and data sharing
