Research Study

Gestational Diabetes Patient Partner Engagement


If you are currently pregnant or were recently pregnant with gestational diabetes and are interested in helping to improve the care of women with gestational diabetes, we'd like to hear from you.

Help develop a research study on the topic of "Understanding barriers and opportunities of virtual care for women with gestational diabetes".

What to expect as a patient partner

  • We want to learn from you, your gestational diabetes experience with the healthcare team, what has worked well and what could be improved.  
  • We also want to hear your ideas to develop our questionnaire to study how the virtual care has helped women with gestational diabetes.

Anticipated timeline
We plan to have monthly virtual meetings, from February 2021 through April 2021. 

How to get involved
If you are interested in participating please contact the study lead, Dr. Bhavadharini Balaji at to learn more.

Note: This is not recruitment for research study participants.
