Are You A Spouse or Partner of Someone with Type 1 Diabetes?


The Behavorial Diabetes Institute (BDI) Needs Your Help


Sometimes it can be tough and frustrating when you have a partner with type 1 diabetes.  So BDI is developing the first Web-based program that is designed to help you, the spouse or partner of an adult with type 1 diabetes, to cope more successfully.  In early 2013, this program will be available to partners all over the world at no cost.

BDI is looking for partners/spouses of adults with type 1 diabetes to complete an online questionnaire.  BDI will use the initial results of this questionnaire to help understand how partners are struggling and what might be needed to help them.  The findings will then be use to build the tools for the final online program.

Please note that we will not be asking for any personal information that will identify you in any way.   The questionnaire is completely anonymous.

Anyone who has an adult spouse or partner with type 1 diabetes is eligible.  Must be fluent in English.

Please complete the online questionnaire by accessing our private and secure study website at:

The questionnaire will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete.

There is no compensation.

T*his is a joint project of the Behavioral Diabetes Institute (which is run by William H. Polonsky, PHD, CDE) and the Bringing Science Home initiative (directed by Nicole Johnson).

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact Dr. Polonsky directly at
