Tram Nguyen

GFI Fellow - Class of 2020

Graduate student, public health and social work


Tram will evaluate the impact of participating in virtual implementations of UC Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) on participants’ mental and social well-being and identify their mental and social well-being unmet needs. Since UCLA DPP cohorts were transitioned from in-person to virtual delivery due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the goal of this project will be to examine participant experiences with the new distance learning approaches. A secondary goal will be to use findings to develop promotional or informational materials, in either digital or video format, to help enhance participants’ experiences with DPP.
