Prof. Juliana Chan Explains Challenges of Tackling Diabetes in China, BBC Article

In this BBC article, titled “Diabetes: Asia’s ‘silent killer‘”, Professor Juliana Chan of the Chinese University of Hong Kong talks about the challenge of tackling the diabetes epidemic in China.

A distinguished researcher and diabetes expert, Professor Chan used a grant from Peers for Progress to evaluate the impact of a peer support intervention (PEARL) on patients with diabetes in Hong Kong. In this project, not only did peer support lead to improvements in clinical indicators and quality of life, but the intervention also normalized hospitalization rates for patients experiencing high diabetes-related distress.
