MHRI is on the radio!
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.
