Highlight on INQRI Work: Diabetes Prevention

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.

  1. Hi,

    7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
    If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

    Thank You,
