Volunteers Needed for Emory Study Aimed at Screening for Diabetes in Earliest Stage
Male and female volunteers are needed for a research study at Emory University to screen for and treat the early stages of diabetes. The study will screen people for borderline or pre-diabetes, called Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT). IGT does not mean that a person has diabetes, but the condition does often progress into diabetes.

The screening involves two visits at either Emory University Hospital or Grady Memorial Hospital. Study organizers want to enroll participants over a wide range of demographics: young and old (ages 18 to 70), men and women, African-American and Caucasian. To participate, please call Emory Health Connection at (404) 778-7777. Parking for visits is free.
