Implementing the Diabetes Prevention Program in WIC Clinics

Dr. Dorans is an epidemiologist focused on cardiometabolic diseases. Her research interests include the epidemiology of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, cardiometabolic health disparities, and studying interventions aimed at reducing health disparities. Current work includes implementation research focused on strategies for implementing the evidence-based Diabetes Prevention Program in postpartum women who receive services from the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). If Diabetes Prevention Program implementation strategies studied are acceptable, feasible, appropriate, and cost-effective in WIC clinics, these strategies have the potential to be scaled up and sustained in WIC clinics in Louisiana and elsewhere.
