Center for American Indian and Alaska Native Diabetes Translation Research

​​We have identified several lines of inquiry that hold good promise for the initial work of the CAIANDTR. Two are prominent among these.  The first involves the use of health information technologies, specifically mobile and eHealth, to enhance intervention retention, to improve participant education, and to promote better self-management of chronic diseases such as diabetes.  The second examines the influence of the built environment on the prevention as well as management of chronic diseases such as diabetes. We have convened two workgroups to explore possible collaboration on translational research with Native communities who have expressed keen interest in such lines of inquiry.  The membership of each group is listed below.
