Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, was awarded $54,637 for her project entitled, "The Impact of Influential Life Events on Self-Management of Type 1 Diabetes in Adulthood." This one-year Fall Competition award from the UW Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education will support the use of 24 years of Wisconsin Diabetes Registry survey data and measures of glycemic control (A1c), along with interviews with adult patients, in order to identify influential and actionable life events that influence diabetes self-management. The findings from the work will be incorporated as preliminary data in a future research grant to the National Institutes of Health. Congratulations!
