A Patient-Centered Strategy for Improving Diabetes Prevention in Urban American Indians
The goal of the proposed research is to identify effective patient-centered strategies to prevent diabetes in high-risk populations in real world settings. The investigators will accomplish this by conducting a randomized controlled trial comparing an enhanced Diabetes Prevention Program addressing psychosocial stressors to a standard version in a high-risk population of urban American Indian and Alaska Native people within a primary care setting.
Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
