To improve health outcomes and care for women living with diabetes
Through the collaborative power of DiabetesSistersVoices, we will transform research on diabetes to meet the needs and preferences of women living with diabetes.
DiabetesSistersVoices was made possible through a partnership between DiabetesSisters, physicians at the Johns Hopkins University and University of North Carolina, TrustNetMD and a Stakeholder Advisory Board composed of women and diabetes advocates. Your DiabetesSIstersVoices team members are dedicated to care of women with diabetes at every phase of their lives.
The project has provided an interactive, engaging website for women with diabetes to discuss what research they believe is most important to improve their health, well-being and health care to guide the research community in setting future research priorities
The Voices from this community have been helping researchers to understand what health topics are most important to women living with or at risk of diabetes, and what types of research is needed to improve the health and health care of women living with diabetes.
Our team has compiled the communities’ ideas into a final report called The Patient-Centered Women’s Health and Diabetes Report - for our patients, policy-makers, advocates, researchers, clinicians and other groups to better understand what priorities in research should be.
DiabetesSistersVoices was funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
