“Determining Self-Management and Clinical Associations
Related to Diabetes 



Dr. Cavanaugh will characterize diabetes stigma and determine its impact on self-management and diabetes health outcomes. It is a novel factor that may be modified through patient-provider interventions to have potential widespread implications for the delivery of diabetes care. This pilot award is critical to launch this emerging research.
