Webinars: Can Subsidized Transportation Options Slow Diabetes Progression? (November 6).
Can Subsidized Transportation Options Slow Diabetes Progression? (November 6, 12:00-1:00 pm ET). This webinar will introduce a new research effort, led by Georgia State University, to test several low-cost ways of improving transportation opportunities for low-income urban diabetic patients, including providing public transit vouchers, ride-share credits on Lyft, a cash benefit, or mobility counseling compared with usual medical care alone. The team will estimate the impact of these mobility enhancements on access to care, diabetes progression, healthcare utilization and costs. The research team will collaborate with Grady Health System, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, the Atlanta Regional Commission, and the Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement to conduct the study. Work is being supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Register for the webinar.
