NIH funds innovative study to examine use of text messaging in improving diabetes care

Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute has received a five-year, $2.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to fund an innovative clinical trial that will use mHealth technology and text messaging to improve type 2 diabetes management among high-risk Hispanic patients in San Diego County.

Known as Dulce Digital-Me, this is the third research effort by the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute to win funding from the federal agency in the past 13 months. In August 2015, the Scripps institute received $2.1 million to study the use of specially trained medical assistants as diabetes health coaches. A month later, the institute received $2.4 million to study a nurse and volunteer team approach to reduce hospitalizations among Hispanic patients with multiple chronic conditions.

"Our success attracting financial support from the NIH clearly demonstrates the value of the research we are doing to better understand and treat a disease that is rising in epidemic proportions in our country and occurs more frequently among Hispanics, who also often experience worse health outcomes," said Athena Philis-Tsimikas, M.D., corporate vice president for the Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute. "We believe our work will identify innovative, cost-effective ways to improve diabetes care and help to reduce health disparities among this underserved population."

you do not need to fix anything it is perfect the way it is.


Here are some corrections:
