July 29, 2016

Laura J. Gray, MSc, PhD, of the department of health sciences at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, and colleagues evaluated 880 participants from the previously completed Let’s Prevent Diabetes trial, a cluster randomized controlled trial that randomly assigned 43 general practices to provide patients with a type 2 diabetes prevention education program (n = 447) or usual care (n = 433).
