Dr. Joiner’s research interests center on prevention of type 2 diabetes and improvement of health outcomes of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and the development of self-management interventions for populations that do not have adequate access to preventive and primary care health services. Projects have included describing Latino immigrants’ perceptions of risks of developing type 2 diabetes, developing and testing of a type 2 diabetes prevention intervention delivered via mobile app, describing the experiences during the transition from adolescence to young adulthood in Latino youth with type 1 diabetes, and piloting an exercise and coping skills training program for adolescents with type 1 diabetes. He is currently working to develop and pilot test a Spanish-language type 2 diabetes prevention self-management support intervention that is sensitive to unique Latino cultural preferences and accessible to individuals who are limited English proficiency.
