Peer Mentoring African American Veterans to Improve Glucose Control

Long and colleagues compared African American veterans with diabetes aged 50 to 70 years old randomly assigned to 1 of 3 groups: usual care, a peer mentoring group, and a financial incentives group. Participants in the peer mentoring group showed the most improvement with a reduction in hemoglobin A1c from 9.8% to 8.7% over the 6 month intervention.
