    Participants Needed for Research on the Family Life of African-American Youth with Type 1 Diabetes.

    Are you the parent/guardian of an African- American youth age 5-17 with type 1 diabetes mellitus for at least five years?

    If so…
    Volunteers are needed to take part in a study to examine the issues associated with the management of type 1 diabetes mellitus in African-American youth, from a parental point of view.

    What’s involved?

    You will be asked to participate in a telephone interview that will take approximately 20-30 minutes. You will be asked about the way that you help manage your child’s T1DM and the challenges related to control and management of the disease that you experience. A sample of the study questions are below:

    - What family members participate in decisions related to your child’s diabetes management?
    - How do you know that the decisions that you make related to your child’s diabetes management are correct and effective?
    - How has your child’s diabetes affected family life?

    Who can participate?

    - Parents of African- American youth age 5-17 with type 1 diabetes for at least six months..
    - Reside in the Eastern region of the United States.
    - Have access to a telephone
    - Able to speak, write and read English.
    - Both parents are African-American

    What are the Risks?

    Being in this type of study does not involve any risk of discomfort other than those associated with the discussion of a challenging and thought provoking topic. However, you will be contributing to the body of knowledge used to help determine the factors that affect glycemic control and management of African-American youth with T1DM, as described by the parents of these children.

    How can I participate?
    If you have questions about this research study or are interested in participating, please contact Sonya Strider at Sonya.Strider@waldenu.edu

    I have gotten permission from Jeff to post this here.
