Diabetes Research Study at Texas A&M

Diabetes Research Study at Texas A&M

Howdy! My name is Sayah Lee from the Center for Population Health and Aging at Texas A&M University. I am writing to share about an important research study we are conducting on diabetes. Our study focuses on helping people manage type 2 diabetes through education, and we are recruiting participants who are at least 25 years old with type 2 diabetes, whose A1c level is at least 7.5%, and who can read and speak English. There are no medications provided in the study. Everything is done virtually and is free for eligible participants. We would like to ask for your support in sharing about our study to the people in your listserv and network and really to anybody who may benefit from this opportunity in Texas. To give you more information about the research project, the name of it is Living Healthier with Diabetes, and we are trying to examine what kind of education is most effective for people with type 2 diabetes. We are currently recruiting participants with type 2 diabetes, who will be invited to attend online diabetes self-management education and support sessions and/or to download and use a smartphone app for diabetes self-management education and support over 3 months. Please note that everything is done online and eligible participants can receive up to $200 in electronic gift cards. The hope is that the results of this study will provide a better understanding of how diabetes self-management education and support benefits people with type 2 diabetes. We believe some folks may truly benefit from this opportunity (or refer us to those who may), especially those who are struggling to manage their diabetes but don’t know where to start. Thank you for your support. Sincerely, Sayah learn more about the research study

Mary Phelps ’82

Mary Phelps ’82

My most important accomplishment is being Nana to Aly, Cason and Haley. My passions are TAMU Football, going to at least 2 away games a year, my dogs, helping and rescuing those in need, and running (to relieve stress...LOL). My proudest moment The acceptance of women in the industry has changed dramatically from when I started 36 years ago. I’m glad I’ve been a part of helping pave the way for women behind me. I think that’s what I’m most proud of. More about Mary Meet Mary Phelps '82, LEED GA Strategic Accounts Manager, Healthcare Leader 1. How did you get involved in the industry? After graduating from TAMU with a degree in Industrial Distribution in ’82, I took a job in the oil and gas industry before quickly transitioning into the plumbing industry. The early 80’s were a bad time to be in Oil and Gas. An opportunity became available through the placement center at TAMU with American Standard Brands and I made the move. I spent 32 years with ASB before coming to Sloan. I enjoyed my tenure with ASB. I had various roles, calling on everyone from the A&D community, MEP’s, mechanical contractors, showrooms and handling commercial plumbing and strategic accounts before leaving for Sloan in June of 2016. I have been truly blessed to love what I do. 2. What do you like most about the industry/the company you currently work for? While there have been many challenges along the way I love the fact that the industry has so much to offer. Whether it’s supply chain, manufacturing, product development, sales, marketing or management, the possibilities are endless. I have the opportunity to meet so many interesting and great people. I call on decision makers, designer, architects, engineers and plumbing contractors from the vertical markets of...
