The community based diabetes prevention programme will determine optimal ways to translate the programs developed for research studies of lifestyle interventions for diabetes prevention to real-life settings in Chennai (formerly Madras) India. The Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University will collaborate with a team of investigators from Madras Diabetes Research Foundation (MDRF) and will facilitate a study of 700 people with pre-diabetes in Chennai. The study is designed to explore ways to identify and evaluate culturally appropriate, low-cost, feasible and sustainable ways to promote changes in health behaviours, improved diet, weight loss and increased physical activity to prevent diabetes in those in South India.

The messages will be tailored to the unique dietary patterns and physical activity programmes of Indian communities and will be designed to determine if these targeted interventions are effective and cost-effective.

"This grant will help researchers and clinicians to better understand how to create and deliver culturally tailored programs for the prevention of diabetes in high-risk populations. The project is designed to produce a permanent, community-based program for promoting diabetes prevention and healthy lifestyle changes" said Dr. K.M. Venkat Narayan, principal investigator of the study and a world leader in translational research.
