Diabetes Research

Published June 2003

The UC Medical Center and Veteran's Affairs Medical Center are participating in a research study to test three complementary medical treatment strategies to reduce cardiovascular disease in people with type-2 diabetes.

The study, called Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD), is currently the largest national type-2 diabetes study.

Persons with type-2 diabetes and either high blood pressure or high cholesterol that are 55 years of age or older, or 40 years of age and have had a heart attack, stroke or blood vessel blockage, are needed for the study. All eligible participants will receive diabetes medication, follow-up and either blood pressure or cholesterol medications at no cost.

To Schedule an appointment contact Belinda Carter at belinda.carter@med.va.gov or (513) 861-3100 ext. 4431.
