Type 1 Diabetes Education and Support (T1DES) Study

The Type 1 Diabetes Education and Support (T1DES) study is a pilot randomized clinical trial among Black young adults ages 18-26 years with Type 1 Diabetes. As part of this study, participants are randomized to receive the T1DES intervention in conjunction with diabetes management education or diabetes management education alone. The study is assessing the feasibility of the culturally tailored intervention (T1DES) and evaluate the effect of the T1DES intervention on reducing diabetes distress and improving diabetes management. T1DES is working with an advisory board of young Black young adults with type 1 diabetes to adapt an existing intervention.

This study is funded by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and lead by Dr. Teaniese Davis at the Center for Research and Evaluation. Recruitment for the trial is anticipated to start in January 2023.

The T1DES study is currently looking for individuals to join their advisory board. Advisory board member must be 18-30 years age, identify as Black or African American, and be diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. To learn more about joining the T1DES advisory board, please email the project manager at and complete this interest form.
