In low income communities, Type-2 Diabetes is spiking in younger and younger people. It is time to start talking about it...

Dr. Dean Schillinger, professor in the UCSF School of Medicine, will present, “Seeing The Bigger Picture in Diabetes Prevention: Early Results from a Youth-Oriented Public Health Literacy Campaign” as part of our School of Public Health Grand Rounds Lecture Series.

Come hear how a community-based collaboration engaged youth from vulnerable communities to change the conversation about Type-2 Diabetes and work to change the social and environmental factors that have led to its spread, especially in their communities. 

Dr. Schillinger is a general internist and primary care physician and Chief of the UCSF Division of General Internal Medicine at San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH), a large urban public hospital system. An international research expert on health communication and chronic diseases, he founded the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations, and currently directs its Health Communications Research Program.
