Patient and Parent Perceptions of Hypertension and Hyperlipidemia Management and Diabetes Complications


This study will explore parent and youth attitudes toward cardiovascular risk factors such as high cholesterol or blood pressure and diabetes complications.

Participation involves:

  • one interview or focus group for approximately 60-90 minutes. Interviews can be on the same day as routine diabetes visits and will add an extra 60 minutes to the clinic day.

The study will provide a parking voucher on the day of the interview or focus group. Participating teens and parents will also receive compensation for their time and effort.


This study is longer recruiting.
