INQRI researchers at Yale University are conducting a randomized clinical trial to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in at-risk adults with a diabetes prevention program provided by visiting nurses in subsidized housing units. They will modify a research-based diabetes prevention program; evaluate the preliminary effects of the modified diabetes prevention program provided by visiting nurses; and they will explore the reach, adoption, implementation, and cost of a diabetes prevention program delivered by visiting nurses to residents in subsidized housing units.
This work, led by Robin Whittemore, Ph.D., a nurse scholar, and Alana Rosenberg, M.P.H., a scholar in public health, comes at a crucial time. A study published in this month's issue of Diabetes Care suggests that the number of Americans with diabetes is expected to almost double by 2034.
