Descriptive Information
Brief Title Mastering Diabetes Pilot Study
Official Title Mastering Diabetes Pilot Study
Brief Summary This is a pilot study looking at past results of the Mastering Diabetes program utilizing a survey.
Detailed Description

Adult past and present participants of Mastering Diabetes will be sent an email asking for their participation in the survey. The email will contain a hot link to a REDCap survey which will begin with a description of the study followed by a consent form. Once the consent is agreed, the survey will ask for participants' demographics and information about the variables described below

No personal identifiable information is being collected.

The data from this study will help develop a prospective study to better evaluate the effectiveness of Mastering Diabetes in controlling diabetes.

Future comparative studies between programs are anticipated, which will help identify the strengths and weaknesses of different programs, as well as identify subpopulations that might benefit from one program as opposed to another.

Data will be shared via posters and papers among the lifestyle medicine community to help contribute to better lifestyle interventions.
