Diabetes Self-Management Blog

If you are the parent of a child between the ages of 8 and 16 who has had Type 1 diabetes for at least six months, researchers want to hear from you.

Doctoral candidate Elena Dumont, a student at the Yeshiva University Graduate School of Psychology, is conducting a research study to understand how parental stress due to having a child with Type 1 may be related to different parenting styles.

Volunteers will answer three questionnaires, either online or by mail. According to the researchers, participation will take approximately 15 minutes. For every respondent, a donation will be made to JDRF, the leading funder of Type 1 research.

To learn more about the research, contact Elana Dumont at elanadumont@gmail.com. And to complete the questionnaires, click here.
