To our community: Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, Clinical Research IO had to make the difficult decision to discontinue funding for Caretalk. We've decided to leave the website up as a resource for the community. Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible, and please enjoy!

5 Ways to Get Involved

Great information about diabetes isn't so great if no one knows about it. Help other patients learn and take more control of their health by spreading the word! Share your experiences online, advocate for legislation, and share the importance of clinical research in making new treatments available for other patients.

There are exciting events in the diabetes community happening all the time. You can volunteer to help to make these events a success. Here are a few upcoming events !

Clinical trials are one of the cornerstones of medical innovation. Almost all of the treatments we rely on today were tested in trials, and there are tens of thousands of clinical trials testing the treatments of tomorrow, going on right now. However, about 50% of trials fail because they don't enroll enough patients. You can be a part of the next scientific breakthrough by participating. Learn if it's right for you by learning more about research on Caretalk!

Caretalk is a community of patients, caregivers, families, scientists, and clinicians who come together to share stories, knowledge, and support each other in their Type 2 Diabetes. When you join Caretalk, you not only get to learn, but you get the chance to participate in your health conversation. Learn more about Caretalk and sign up (it's free)!
