Ryan Shaw, associate professor, and his project "Diabetes Model Care" was recently highlighted at the NIH-NINR Open Council meeting during a presentation by Augie Diana, Project officer at NINR, for SBIR/STTR grants. Shaw’s work was presented as an example of how near real-time data from mobile health technologies can be used to improve diabetes self-management and to facilitate care delivery. This work is supported by NINR through a 3-year R15 award.
Currently in the United States, obesity affects two-thirds of adults. The obesity epidemic is associated with high health care costs – not only individuals but to employers, insurers and health systems. By involving patients and their partners in the weight loss journey, researchers are aiming to prove the effectiveness of joint weight management interventions.
