IPaT Thursday Think Tank - October 14th

The Georgia Center for Diabetes Translation Research (GCDTR) is a NIH-funded collaboration of Georgia Institute of Technology (iPaT), Emory University, and Morehouse School of Medicine. GCDTR’s mission is to develop and implement rigorous translation research that will benefit the most vulnerable groups (i.e., minority racial/ethnic & socioeconomically disadvantaged) who are experiencing the greatest health, social, and economic costs of diabetes.

Health equity is an overarching theme of the GCDTR’s activities, including the new Technologies Advancing Translation and Equity Core. The goal of this core is to create and support a regional translation research network in the Southeastern United States that will identify key gaps, share best practices, and work toward open, accessible technology approaches for reducing health care disparities in diabetes care and prevention.

The specific aims of the Technologies Advancing Translation and Equity Core are: To establish a network of researchers, clinicians, and health administrators across Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee to enhance knowledge sharing activities focused on technological approaches in diabetes prevention and care.

To provide expertise and consulting in five key technological and methodological areas:  a) diversity driven approaches; b) patient interactive technologies; c) wearables and automated insulin delivery; d) artificial intelligence and Big Data; and e) electronic health records and clinical decision support; with specific guidance on reducing disparities and promoting equity.

To conduct focused technology assessments to identify research gaps (in our five key technology areas) that inform annual requests for technology-focused pilot grant opportunities in diabetes prevention and care in underserved populations, older patients, and those with multimorbidity.

Moderators: Dr. Elizabeth Mynatt (GT/iPaT) and Dr. Francisco Pasquel, along with other GCDTR collaborators from GT, Emory, and MSM
