Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute Given $3.3M For Mental Health

SAN DIEGO, CA — The Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute was awarded a five-year, $3.3 million grant Monday to study the integration of mental health services in the care of patients with type 1 diabetes.

In 2016, the American Diabetes Association released guidelines for screening and treating patients with diabetes distress — the name given to the often hidden emotional burden that many people experience when managing a demanding chronic disease like diabetes.

Researchers at Scripps Whittier will use the funds from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases to launch a large-scale, randomized, controlled clinical trial that will evaluate whether the integration of diabetes distress care with routine medical care results in better management of diabetes and better health-related quality of life.

“Diabetes distress is not a psychological disorder, but rather represents the understandable emotional strain of living with a life-long condition,” said Addie Fortmann, a clinical

SpoonfulOne to Launch Digital Food Allergy Prevention Trial with Duke Clinical Research Institute

MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — SpoonfulOne, a food allergy protection company, is launching a first-of-its-kind digital, randomized, controlled trial with the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) to evaluate the ability to protect against food allergies with routine feeding of the most common food allergy proteins during infancy and toddlerhood. The trial is expected to begin in December with the recruitment of 1,500 healthy babies between four to six months of age.

The study will be led by Principal Investigator, pediatric allergist, David Jeong, MD, and co-investigated by DCRI’s Christoph Hornik, MD, PhD, MPH, who specializes in neonatal and infant therapeutics. In addition,

What Is the Extent of a Global Wellness Economy? A Critique of a Global Wellness Institute Report

INTRODUCTION: GWI and GWS

The latest Global Wellness Institute (GWI) report, part of a White Paper Series, is entitled Understanding Wellness: Four Global Forces Driving the Growth of the Wellness Economy.

The report traces factors going far back in history that were seeds for the eventual emergence of wellness, starting with ayurveda, traditional Chinese and ancient Greek medicines from around 3000-500 B.C. to the present day. Of special interest is a section entitled 20th Century: Wellness Spreads and Get Serious. This sub-heading sketches a 30-year period from the 1970s to the end of the century.

Full disclosure: Any assessment on my part of initiatives by GWI will be influenced, even if unconsciously, by the fact that I’m an enthusiast for the role GWI has played and continues to contribute to the advance of the art and science of the wellness concept. Furthermore, I’ve shared a platform with the Chairman/CEO of … Read More
