The objective of the Connecticut Diabetes Surveillance System (CDSS) is to provide timely and relevant information about diabetes and its complications in Connecticut, as well as related risk factor information. CDSS provides support to the Connecticut Diabetes Prevention and Control Program, a CDC-funded program within the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
