Lifestyle Intervention Achieves Increased Reduction in A1C After Six Months for African Americans with Type 2 Diabetes NEW ORLEANS, June 12, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A study designed to test the impact of an intensive lifestyle intervention program on lowering blood glucose levels in low-income, African Americans with type 2 diabetes successfully reduced A1C after six months, relative to standard-of-care diabetes education. However, the study found no significant difference in reductions in the two groups by the end of the study period of one year, according to results reported at the American Diabetes Association's 76th Scientific Sessions®, June 12, 2016, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. African Americans with type 2 diabetes suffer disproportionate rates of diabetes complications and hospitalizations, mostly due to poor glycemic control. This study evaluated if an intensive lifestyle intervention for low-income African Americans could help reduce blood glucose levels through a culturally-tailored and interactive intensive diabetes education program and increased social support that would lead to changes in diet and physical activity. The study included 211 low-income, African American patients (55±10 years of age) with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes (A1C>7%) attending five outpatient clinics in the Cook County Health and Hospitals System (CCHHS) in Chicago. Participants were 70 percent female and 58 percent had an income of ≤$20,000 per year. They were randomly assigned to an intensive diabetes self-management arm known as the Lifestyle Improvement through Food and Exercise (LIFE) program (n=106), or a control arm (n=105) that received standard of care diabetes education. Participants had BMI of 35.6±8 kg/m2 and a duration of diabetes of 11.3±9 years. Participant retention was 93 percent in the LIFE arm and 95 percent in the control arm. Patients in the LIFE arm were offered 28 group counseling sessions with dietitians and peer supporters in a community setting during the study period of one year, meeting weekly for the first four months; biweekly for the second four months; and monthly for the last four months of the study. The group sessions consisted of interactive and culturally-tailored diabetes nutrition education; group exercise sessions; and social support in the form of supportive group discussions and problem solving assistance. The LIFE arm patients also received weekly phone calls from peer supporters in their community during the same 12-month period. Participants were educated and counseled to be able to self-monitor blood glucose levels and to interpret the levels in order to actively participate in their diabetes management. . Patients in the control group participated in two diabetes self-management education group classes, led by a registered dietitian in the first six months of the study. While this level of education meets national standards, it is not usual care for diabetes patients in the Cook County Health and Hospitals System. At six months, patients in the LIFE arm had a significantly greater reduction of A1C (-0.76 vs. -0.21 in control, p=0.026), as well as a higher percentage of participants who saw a decline of more than 0.5 percent in their average blood glucose levels (63 percent in the LIFE group vs. 42 percent in the control group, p=0.005). These differences, however, were not maintained at 12 months. By the end of the 12-month study period, patients in the control group also exhibited a decrease in A1C (-0.63 for the LIFE group vs. -0.45 for the control, p=0.47), and an equal number of patients in each group achieved a reduction in A1C of more than 0.5 percent compared to those in the LIFE arm (53 percent in the LIFE group vs. 51 percent in the control group, p=0.89). A greater number of participants in the LIFE group achieved glycemic control at 12 months (61 percent in the LIFE group vs. 39 percent in the control group, p=0.16) but that difference was not statistically significant. "Sustained behavior change is very difficult and may be especially difficult for low-income, high-risk patients with type 2 diabetes," said lead investigator Elizabeth B. Lynch, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Preventive Medicine, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago. "While our results confirm positive results in a high-risk population with intensive educational and social support, they also suggest that, over time, motivated patients take the initiative and achieve glycemic control with standard-of-care education." "One possible explanation for the decrease in A1C in the control group is that medication adherence increased in this group, relative to the intervention group," explained Lynch. "Additional research is needed to identify the most effective strategies to achieve sustained A1C control in African Americans with type 2 diabetes." The American Diabetes Association's 76th Scientific Sessions, to be held June 10-14, 2016, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, is the world's largest scientific meeting focused on diabetes. The 2016 Scientific Sessions is expected to attract more than 16,000 attendees and offers researchers and health care professionals from around the world the opportunity to share ideas and learn about the significant advances in diabetes research, treatment and care.

The third season of docuseries "It Got Better," a collaboration between the creative team of Lisa Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky's Is Or Isn't Entertainment ("The Comeback"; "Web Therapy"; "Who Do You Think You Are?") and Dan Savage ("Savage Love") and the It Gets Better Project, premieres today on Lexus' digital content channel L/Studio (LStudio.com). With the series' third season debut, L/Studio demonstrates its continued support of this passion project from Kudrow/Bucatinsky, who produced the channel's Emmy-nominated and Webby award-winning "Web Therapy" series. "We recognize how important it is to host the inspirational stories shared in the 'It Got Better' series to reach a diverse community through our content channel," said Andrea Lim, Lexus digital communications manager who oversees L/Studio. "We're honored to work with talented luminaries, such as the creative team behind this series, and equally proud to offer artists a forum to convey their unique perspectives." Inspired by the Emmy Award-winning It Gets Better Project and the Emmy-nominated "Who Do You Think You Are?", the series shares LGBT celebrities' personal stories of overcoming obstacles while putting their struggles and successes in historical context. Each of six episodes chronicles the life of a star with a focus on how and when "it got better" for them. All six videos are now available on LStudio.com and YouTube. This season's episodes feature actor Sir Ian McKellen; singer/songwriter Adam Lambert; actress and talk show host Raven-Symoné; comedian Wanda Sykes; actress Candis Cayne; and reality TV star EJ Johnson. "'It Got Better' grew out of our desire to create an original series with personal and inspirational messages by a diverse range of successful LGBT celebrities sharing their emotional experiences of overcoming obstacles," saidDan Bucatinsky, producer of "It Got Better." "This season more than any other includes such a wide range of stories from racially diverse women and men, aged 20s to 70s, Trans and gay. We're grateful to L/Studio, a platform that encourages that kind of diversity of storytelling." "Each season, I feel like I learn so much about people I've admired for a long time, like Ian McKellen," said Dan Savage, co-founder of the It Gets Better Project (www.itgetsbetter.org). "But I, and our whole "It Got Better" team, also learn about people we hardly knew anything about, which is a credit to the diversity of subjects we've been fortunate to be able to deliver year after year." Currently in its seventh year, L/Studio hosts an eclectic collection of programming designed to engage audiences outside of the traditional automotive encounter. Some notable recent projects include the mockumentary live-action series "Cop Show" starring Colin Quinn with a third season debuting later this summer and comedic series "Hudson Valley Ballers." The Lexus-owned digital content channel also has archived original work from the worlds of art, fashion, science, architecture and beyond. "It Got Better" and other entertaining content is available for viewing at LStudio.com and the L/Studio YouTube page. The series will also be syndicated across Here Media channels. Stay tuned for more L/Studio content this summer.

Radio Facts: Source3, the platform for licensing and distribution of 3D content, and CD Baby, the leading distributor of independent music, announced today a partnership to develop personalized merchandise for CD Baby's 400,000+ artists utilizing 3D printing technology and Source3's licensing platform. The partnership will enable CD Baby artists to produce short runs of personalized merchandise without the substantial upfront financial investment typically required to launch merchandise campaigns. The program is the latest in a series of CD Baby efforts to expand revenue opportunities for artists. "We are always looking for innovative ways to help our artists engage their fans and generate more revenue," says Tracy Maddux, CEO of CD Baby. "By working with Source3, we can explore unique customizable merchandise for our artist roster. That's a dream for artists and fans alike."

"Source3's mission is to deliver the promise of 3D printing to content owners at scale," says Patrick Sullivan, Co-Founder and CEO of Source3. "Source3 provides artists with access to best-in-class digital merchandise designs as well as the leading and most cost-effective 3D printing manufacturers.

Radio Facts: As the nation celebrated its independence on July 4th, thousands of Chicago house heads ascended to Jackson Park to do what Chicagoan's do every year- experience the Chosen Few. As early as 6 am, you can find people in Jackson Park looking for a good spot to set up shop. Grills, lawn chairs, coolers, and an even cooler attitude tend to be the requirements when attending the Chosen Few. For all of the media attention that Chicago receives due to the violence, not enough attention is given to an event like the Chosen Few. In it's 25 year, the weekend long house music festival celebrating Chicago’s homegrown dance genre went down July 2-5, 2015. The main event of the weekend was the 25th annual Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic on Saturday, July 4, 2015 in Jackson Park, which is right across the street from where I attended high school but that is another story for another day. Nicknamed the “Woodstock of House Music," the Chosen Few Picnic may have seen numbers in the 50,000 range for it's anniversary year. For the record, there was no violence, no issues, no bullsh#t - this was plain and simply, a good time. The picnic featured performances from Stephanie Mills, Evelyn “Champagne” King and a host of others but it is the Chosen Few DJ's that keep the park rocking from sun up to sun down. This year featured Louie Vega and Kenny Dope Gonzalez, Derrick Carter, Stan Zeff, Keith Fobs and Greg Gray but as always there were sets by the Chosen Few DJs: Wayne Williams, Jesse Saunders, Tony Hatchett, Alan King, Andre Hatchett, Terry Hunter and Mike Dunn around the city and throughout the entire weekend celebration. The best tribute came when Chicago resident, President Barack Obama appeared on the Chosen Few Picnic scream to deliver a message to his fellow Chicago house heads. How cool is that sh*t? That is really more of a rhetorical question but all in all, it goes to show you the level of how music and the Chosen Few to be specific, has influenced even the President of the United States. All I can say to that is, "House music all night long!"
