The purpose

NOTE: This study is in the trial-phase of a 5-year study that included a formative research phase (Phase 1 - IRB study # 07-1765 "Family-based Diabetes Self-management Training for African American Adults"). During the first phase, eight focus groups were conducted with 68 participants and a validation study with 215 African American patients with type 2 diabetes. The data gathered in Phase 1 informs the refinement of the intervention in this phase. Purpose: The overall goal of this research is to evaluate, in a randomized controlled trial, a family-based diabetes self-management intervention for overweight/obese African American adults with type 2 diabetes (the "index participants") and a paired overweight family member (co-participant) who does not have diabetes. The primary outcome is weight change in the index participant.
