Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2010 Dec;90(3):e60-3. doi: 10.1016/j.diabres.2010.08.013. Epub 2010 Sep 21.


This pilot project evaluated the Group Lifestyle Balance program (GLB), an adaptation of the DPP lifestyle intervention, delivered via DVD with remote participant support provided by the University of Pittsburgh Diabetes Prevention Support Center. Results suggest that GLB-DVD with remote support may provide an effective alternative for GLB delivery.
