New York Times Examines Diabetes in Four-Part Series
The New York Times this week published a four-part series that examined diabetes, "a global crisis" that is "emerging as the biggest health problem menacing New York City." After a one-year examination, the Times found "an alarming lack of urgency about the threat among patients, doctors, insurers" and public health officials, in part because the disease "can take years to show symptoms" (New York Times, 1/9). Headlines from the articles in the series appear below.
- "Diabetes and Its Awful Toll Quietly Emerge as a Crisis" (Kleinfield, New York Times, 1/9).
- "By the Numbers: One Scourge in Two Forms" (New York Times, 1/9).
- "Living at an Epicenter of Diabetes, Defiance and Despair" (Kleinfield, New York Times, 1/10).
- "In the Treatment of Diabetes, Success Often Does Not Pay" (Urbina, New York Times, 1/11).
- "East Meets West, Adding Pounds and Peril" (Santora, New York Times, 1/12).
