Released: October 2010


diaBeaters! is an online intervention created for social work graduate students and practitioners for use with families with a child that has Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). Type 2 Diabetes, already a major health problem among adults, is the fastest growing pediatric epidemic of our decade. diaBeaters provides a multi-stepped, online, interactive intervention for social work practitioners to guide parents and family caregivers to make optimal nutrition and fitness choices for their families and to teach their children appropriate health habits.

Created by Helaine Ciporen, clinical instructor at Mount Sinai Medical Center, in partnership with Professor Mary Sormanti at the Columbia School of Social Work, diaBeaters adapts a series of interventions from Ciporen's forthcoming book. The intervention provides educational modules that include interactive learning activities, printable certificates to award children when they reach milestones, and administrative tools that enable diabetes professional or students to manage the intervention. diaBeaters is employed by students in the Advanced Clinical Practices courses at Columbia University and staff at the Mount Sinai Medical Center. It will also be made available in the future to other colleges and diabetes professionals.
