Diabetes Legislative Report
The Tennessee Diabetes Legislative Report provides the latest data on the prevalence, incidence, morbidity, and mortality of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in Tennessee. The report is a collaboration among the Bureau of TennCare, the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH), and the Department of Finance and Administration. Each agency provides an account of their efforts to decrease the rising incidence of this progressive disease. There are also nine (9) actionable items recommended for consideration provided to the General Assembly of Tennessee to reduce the incidence of diabetes, improve diabetes care, and reduce negative health outcomes associated with diabetes.
