Type 1 Diabetes Research

Building Rural Stakeholder Engagement in Patient-Centered Type 1 Diabetes Research.

Type 1 Diabetes Research

Creighton University is forming focus groups aimed at identifying barriers families, caregivers, health care workers and others who work with a person diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes experience following a diagnosis in rural Iowa and Nebraska.

Our goal is to identify barriers and find solutions in order to aid in the transition to a normal life after a diabetes diagnosis. Each participant will receive a $25 gift card.

Focus groups are open to those who:

  • Have Type 1 diabetes, have a connection to individuals with the condition or provide care to those with the condition

  • Live in rural Nebraska or Iowa and at least one hour from a pediatric endocrinologist

  • Are age 8–80+
