Research Volunteers with Type 2 Diabetes Needed to Evaluate New Mobile App Designed to Manage Diabetes

We are currently recruiting individuals with Type 2 diabetes to provide feedback on a new mobile app designed to help manage diabetes. The study seeks to develop a new dietary assessment and intervention approach that, for the first time, integrates continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) data with a mobile diet tracker to automate personalized dietary guidance.

Participants will attend one in-person interview session, that will last about an hour.

You may qualify for the study if you:

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes at least 6 months ago
  • Speak, read and understand English
  • Use mobile applications (“apps”) at least once a week
