PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] – Those who are aware of their present thoughts and feelings are more likely to have healthy glucose levels, says a study led by Assistant Professor of Epidemiology Eric Loucks. “As mindfulness is likely a modifiable trait, this study provides preliminary evidence for a fairly novel and modifiable potential determinant of diabetes risk,” Loucks said. The article, published in the American Journal of Health Behavior, has received media coverage from many outlets including Science 2.0, Huffington Post, Medical Daily, and Examiner. Professor of Epidemiology Stephen Buka is also an author on the study.
