$6 Million Grant Helps Youth Tackle Diabetes

February 2005

A $6 million grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases is bringing the Stand Up! clinical trial to San Antonio. The Alamo City is one of seven sites nationwide for the Stand Up! study, which seeks to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes in middle school youth.

Stand Up! will be conducted in the San Antonio Independent School District by researchers from the Health Science Center, The University of Texas at San Antonio, and the Social and Health Research Center of San Antonio. The Texas Diabetes Institute will serve as the referral center for all youth diagnosed with the disease. Daniel Hale, M.D., professor and chief of pediatric endocrinology and diabetes at the Health Science Center, is a Stand Up! co-principal investigator along with Roberto P. Treviņo, M.D., from the Social and Health Research Center.
