  • T-UP: Engaging Vulnerable Students in Diabetes Prevention

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The goal of this study is to enhance reach and uptake of diabetes prevention among young adults, with a focus on recruiting underserved and high-need students who face additional challenges, including food and financial insecurity. The specific aims are to: 1) Evaluate the efficacy of adolescents and young adults (AYA)-tailored version of the University of California Diabetes Prevention Program (UC DPP) for mitigating type 2 diabetes risk (i.e., weight change) in a pre/post pilot trial. The investigators hypothesize that the AYA-tailored intervention will be effective at producing 5% weight loss from baseline to program completion (at 9-months); and, 2) Assess the feasibility and acceptability of an AYA-tailored version of the UC DPP program. The investigators hypothesize that it will be feasible to recruit the desired number of participants given proposed innovative outreach strategies, and that the AYA-tailored intervention will be deemed acceptable to participants both qualitatively and in regards to their retention in the program at rates similar to the larger UC DPP. The investigators will randomize participants to the AYA-tailored DPP cohort vs control cohort. Control participants will be offered the opportunity to participate in the AYA-tailored DPP in the following academic year. Participants will be organized into groups within their DPP cohort based on their student status and/or place of residence. The intervention will include 19 sessions (18 in-person and 1 on-demand) covering 24 DPP modules; each session is approximately an hour in length and will be moderated by a lifestyle coach. At the end of each session, intervention participants will receive an email/text with a unique link to a brief REDCap survey to ascertain acceptability of the session. Control group will receive access to materials about study habits, alcohol use, and financial literacy. Control group will receive materials via e-mail for participants to review on their own time and will receive acceptability surveys. A research assistant (RA) will meet with control participants via Zoom to explain the materials. Participants will complete baseline and 9-month follow-up assessments. Participants will complete a 30 minute questionnaire via REDCap and height/weight measurements will be collected by a RA. Participants will be asked to self-report weight and physical activity at the end of the fall and winter quarter; data will be collected via brief REDCap survey.

  • Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study AD/ADRD Project

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The DPPOS AD/ADRD project will address the overarching question: What are the determinants and the nature of cognitive impairment among persons with pre-diabetes (PreD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D), who are a high-risk group for cognitive impairment and represent a large fraction of the United States (US) population? This U19 proposal addresses the National Alzheimer's Project Act goal to "prevent, halt, or reverse AD" in the high-risk group of persons with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, who represent over half of the population aged 60 years and older in the US.
