  1. Assist investigators in developing diabetes-related research questions/hypotheses supported by behavioral theory and empirical evidence.
  2. Support investigators in use of community-engaged methods for planning and implementing intervention research for maximal real-world impact.
  3. Provide consultation on evaluation methods
