(SAN FRANCISCO, July 26, 2013) — Dr. Eric Ding, the Director of Epidemiology at Microclinic International presented an abstract
entitled, “Microclinic Social Network Lifestyle Intervention for Weight Loss and Obesity Management: A 10-Month Randomized Controlled Trial,” earlier this year. It was ranked among the top 10 percent of the accepted abstracts presented at the American Heart Association’s Specialty Conferences in 2013. This study is based on the research led by Microclinic International in a 10-month randomized controlled trial in Bell County, Kentucky, which looked at how the microclinic model could lead to healthy behaviors, specifically measuring the weight, waist circumference, blood pressure, HDL, and change in HbA1c in microclinic participants over time.
In addition to Dr. Ding, the study was co-authored by Microclinic International staff Marta Prescott, Kathleen Watson, Nancy Bui, Leila Makarechi, and Daniel Zoughbie, and it will be re-presented at the following conference:
