To measure the impact of the program on patients' health, several analytical procedures will be used. Dr. Sharrel Pinto, assistant professor and director of the University of Toledo research laboratory, will head the team conducting the analysis using a variety of statistical tests and measures. The goal of Dr. Pinto's research team will be to evaluate economic, clinical and quality of life-related outcomes for patients with diabetes, providing insight into improving the delivery and quality of care for patients with such chronic conditions. The research team will include pharmacy undergraduate and graduate students.
