About Our Partnership with Rutgers University, Camden - Family Members as Coaches For Patients with Type 2 Diabetes

What services do we provide?

“Family Members as Coaches” is research to learn about how learning coaching skills with a friend or family member might improve self-management of diabetes. New Jersey residents with type 2 diabetes and their family member can choose to participate in group sessions to learn coaching skills or just complete surveys. Group coaching sessions, with a friend or family member, will be for 1.5 hours for 4 weeks. These can be attended via video chat (Zoom). Each participant is compensated $100.

What does building a Culture of Health mean to Rutgers University, Camden as an organization?

It means ensuring that all residents have the skills and tools to be healthy. To us, it means involving family members/friends in helping with the management of type 2 diabetes, most of which occurs at home. Coaching, which involves positive communication strategies, is a skill that can be applied to other conditions and contexts.
