Diabetes and Dance
Do you have diabetes? Do you like dance—or would you like to learn how to express yourself through a creative form of exercise?
We are conducting a research study of how participating in a dance workshop can help people with diabetes. Our workshop offers a new form of diabetes therapy and peer support.
To participate in the study, you must:
Have diabetes (Type II)
Be over the age of 18
Be comfortable trying out various dance styles—no prior dance experience is necessary.
Be comfortable discussing and sharing your experiences with diabetes in a supportive group setting.
The study will consist of a baseline visit, 8 dance workshops, and a follow up visits in February through April.
Where: Baseline visits, follow up visits, and workshop sessions will be held at the Seymour Center in Chapel Hill (2551 Homestead Road).
When: Tuesdays from 5:30-7. Workshops will begin in February and end in April.
If you are interested in the study, please respond to this survey.
