Purpose: The purpose of this Planning Grant (R34) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage research applications to develop and pilot test approaches to improve diabetes and obesity prevention and/or treatment in routine healthcare settings.  Research applications should be designed to pilot test practical and potentially sustainable strategies to improve processes of care and health outcomes for individuals who are overweight or obese or at risk for becoming overweight or obese and/or at risk for or have type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The goal is that, if the pilot study shows promise, the data from the R34 will be used to support a full scale trial focused on improving routine healthcare practice and informing healthcare policy for the prevention or management of diabetes and obesity.
