Kansas State University and the University of Kansas Medical Center are using a National Institutes of Health grant to determine if having K-State Research and Extension deliver a diabetes prevention program across Kansas is an effective way of getting information out to rural communities. K-State Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter, a trained coach for the National Diabetes Prevention Program, says the six-month pilot program will be launched in Lyon and Dickinson counties.
