'On Air' with the GRADE study

MHRI is on the radio!

Diabetes is a leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and MedStar Health Research Institute is conducting the GRADE Study to identify which medicines work best for people recently diagnosed with type II diabetes. 
This NIH sponsored study will compare the effectiveness of  4 different medicines in combination with metformin in about 5000 people. All the medicines are approved by FDA, and are recommended by American Diabetes Association. 
Participants receive the study medications as well as testing equipment and supplies, diabetes education, electrocardiograms, and have blood and urine tests all at no charge.  

We are very excited to have the GRADE Study advertised on WHUR and WOL-AM, respectively.  Through recognition via radio audiences, the GRADE study can be introduced throughout the local community.  In addition, media exposure can help to alert individuals, who might not be in the MedStar system, about this large study.  Medical research advancement is dependent upon studies, such as GRADE, in order to continue progress towards treatment of chronic diseases.
