The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) consortium, funded by the NIH in 2002, is an international extension of the work initiated by DAISY. Six groups of research doctors from across the world are working together in this study to screen over 350,000 newborns and follow nearly 8,000 of those with higher risk genes. All of the centers are collecting the same information about the viruses, dietary factors, immunizations, and stressors in the lives of children in the study to determine the factors that could be changed to prevent diabetes. TEDDY centers are located in Denver (headed by Dr. Marian Rewers), Seattle, Florida, Georgia, Sweden, Finland, and Germany.
