Technology supported treatment of sleep apnea in prediabetes

Project: Research project


Dr. Spring will lead the Northwestern University site. She will be responsible for the overall supervision, quality control and the implementation of lifestyle intervention that integrates the technology-supported intensive weight management treatment, successfully used in her prior research, combined with the treatment component to foster CPAP adherence. She will also participate in data interpretation and manuscript preparation. Dr. Pfammatter will work with the technology team, J.C. Subida and Gleb Iakovlev to ensure that the intervention technologies that deliver treatment components to participants are consistent with evidence-based behavior change principles and that they provide lifestyle coaches with the systems support and information they need to coach effectively. Dr. Pfammatter will also provide training, supervision, and daily clinical oversight for the lifestyle coaches.
