Food Insecurity clinical trials at UCSF

2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people

Food insecurity is when people don't have enough healthy food to eat. UCSF is looking for people to join a clinical trial. The trial is called "Changing Health Through Food Support for Diabetes." It will use Project Open Hand to help people get healthy food and see how it affects their diabetes.

  • Changing Health Through Food Support for Diabetes

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a pragmatic randomized controlled trial (RCT) of Changing Health through Food Support for Diabetes (CHEFS-DM). This pragmatic RCT will leverage Project Open Hand's (POH) real-world programs to test the impact of a six month medically tailored food support and nutrition intervention ("CHEFS-DM") on glycemic control and other cardiometabolic outcomes, investigate the paths through which CHEFS-DM may durably improve health, and assess the economic value of the intervention to society.

  • Comparison of Produce Prescription Benefit Dosage

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of this study is to determine the relationship between produce prescription program 'dose' on benefit redemption, food insecurity, and fruit and vegetable consumption. Participants will be randomized to receive one of three fruit and vegetable benefit dose amounts for 6 months ($40, $80, or $110/month).
