Pre-diabetes study wins “Excellence in Innovation Award” at the Hawkes Bay Health Awards

Wednesday, 30 November 2016


Congratulations to ECU’s Professor Lisa Whitehead, Associate Dean Research, School of Nursing and Midwifery, for the “Excellence in Innovation” award for the project on which she is a collaborator “Clinically relevant differences (including genetic risk) between those who regress to normoglycaemia, those with persistent pre-diabetes, and those who progress to T2DM”.  This award recognises those initiatives which have significantly changed the way clinicians work with patients, within teams and with others.

The study was awarded $1.1 million from the Health Research Council of New Zealand earlier this year. The collaboration between Edith Cowan University, University of Otago, Health Hawkes Bay, and University of Colorado will target people diagnosed with prediabetes, a condition highly likely to progress to a diagnosis of diabetes if left untreated.
