Diversity: The differences in age, race, gender, ethnicity, education, and background within a group – is a critical but often-neglected aspect of research and scientific inquiry. We frequently hear about its importance in many aspects of our life, such as schools and the workplace. However, diversity is particularly important when studying diseases and chronic conditions.

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--T1D Exchange today announced that it will share data from ten abstracts, including six late breaking, focused on quality improvement, population health and real-world evidence and outcomes of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 80th Scientific Virtual Sessions. Two posters from the organization’s Quality Improvement Collaborative were recognized by healthcare information firm Close Concerns in its list of Top 50 Most Notable Posters.

People living with type 1 diabetes learn, in many ways, to be research scientists and investigators of their own lives. We learn how slices of pizza or a plate of spaghetti affects our blood sugar, and how to mediate those effects with multiple boluses of insulin or a long-lasting dose. We discover precisely how much sugar we need to stay steady during an intense workout session. In doing so, we begin to learn about the meaning and applications of real-world data and evidence. Modern medical and scientific research takes several different approaches to investigation, from randomized, controlled clinical trials to longitudinal, observational studies that examine how people live with various conditions and therapies in the real world.

Research on type 1 diabetes often centers on its health impacts, but people with type 1 diabetes have long said that such research only paints half of the picture, and that there are many more hidden costs to life with the condition.
