Participants Sought For Landmark Study To Measure Effects Of Music On Diabetes Outcomes

PAINESVILLE, Ohio, March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Lake Hospital System today announced that it has received a $60,000 grant from the Kulas Foundation to support a groundbreaking study that will measure the effects of music therapy on health-related outcomes for patients with diabetes.

Participants will be regularly monitored throughout the study by health professionals who specialize in diabetes. Outcomes to be studied include blood pressure, hemoglobin A1c (blood sugar), body mass index, anxiety and stress.
