Mount Hood, Diabetes Challenge Network, is dedicated to promoting an exchange of ideas and information between those developing and using health economic diabetes simulation models.

The Mount Hood, Diabetes Challenge Network, has run a diabetes health economics and computer simulation modelling conference bi-annually since 1999. A major focal point of the conferences are comparisons of health economic diabetes models both in terms of their structure and performance. A write-up of a past conference can be found here. Information, including programs for all of the past conferences, can be found on the archive page.

The Network has also developed an extensive set of diabetes simulation modelling resources and guidelines for those developing or using simulation models. 

The search site function on the right-hand side of the menu bar is a good way to find specific information.

If you would like to receive information on future diabetes simulation modelling meetings, please send an email with "ADD ME TO THE MAILING LIST" in the subject line to mthood2016[at], or use the form on the contact page.
