The investigators will identify and recruit 500 patients. Participants for this study (men and women) will be recruited for the diabetes outpatient clinic of the Joslin Diabetes Center. Subjects from minority and various ethnic/racial groups will be invited to participate in the study at the same proportional to Massachusetts's population, which is 86.5% white, 6.9 Black, 0.3% American Indian and Alaska, 4.9 Asian, 0.1% Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and 8.2% of Hispanic or Latino origin. The investigators will monitor our recruitment by gender and race/ethnicity and modify our recruitment procedures if necessary to ensure that there is no selection bias due to these factors.
