We received an invitation to something called the “Type One Training (TOTs) Project”, an NIH funded research program to help support parents of young children with Type 1 diabetes.
Anyone familiar with this project? If so, would you recommend it? We’re always looking for ways to help better our sons life so we may take the offer.
Pretty good sized packet, but some of the takeaways include:
What is the purpose of the study?
We designed this program to help give parents more support around making food and activity choices for their child with T1D. The purpose of this study is to test the program, called Type One Training Project (TOTs), to see if it improves children’s health. The goal of our research program is to find ways to improve clinical care for all children with T1D.
What is the cost? Is my insurance involved?
There is no cost to participate. Your insurance is not involved. They will not know about your participation in the study and your child’s diabetes care will not be impacted by your decision to participate. Gift cards will be given to your family in appreciation of your time and commitment.
The Principal Investigator for this research study is Randi Streisand, Ph.D. Department of Psychology at Children’s Hospital in D.C.
Food vouchers / parking for any on-site requirement as well as gift certificates for the time families take to participate in the study (up to $500)
