INQRI grantee Robin Whittemore recently wrote about her INQRI-funded project, "A Diabetes Prevention Program in the Community" for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' National Partnership for Action blog.
Dr. Whittemore, her co-project investigator Alana Rosenberg, MPH, and their team conducted a randomized clinical trial to reduce the
risk of type 2 diabetes in at-risk adults with a diabetes prevention
program provided by visiting nurses in subsidized housing units. They
modified a research-based diabetes prevention program; evaluated the
preliminary effects of the modified diabetes prevention program provided
by visiting nurses; and explored the reach, adoption, implementation
and cost of a diabetes prevention program delivered by visiting nurses
to residents in subsidized housing units.
