What Our Research Patients are Saying
"Last January I had to begin taking insulin for my diabetes. It was life changing for me. I had always been afraid of starting insulin. However, when I qualified for the diabetes clinical trial, it helped me accept this change in my life. The Research Coordinators are the very best you could ask for. They explained everything and let me know what to expect. I could never have controlled my diabetes if it hadn't been for this research program, the research staff and the study doctor. I would recommend participating in a research trial to anyone who has diabetes. It and the research staff are a godsend."
