Living in Southeastern Ohio I never thought I would be able to participate in a medical clinical trial without multiple trips to Columbus or Cleveland. Lately I have seen advertisements for Program ACTIVE. It's an eye-catching color ad with the program name and contact information, but, to me it seems like another exercise program. Luckily, about nine months ago, I saw the program discussed on morning TV and was curious enough to call. My motivation was not to help mankind, but to get something for myself. I'm diabetic and have not had medical insurance for over two years, making it extremely difficult to get the medications, testing and support I needed.
