Caroline R Richardson, M.D., the Dr. Max and Buena Lichter Research Professor of Family Medicine, will serve as a co-investigator on a new interdisciplinary implementation research team.
After months of scientific review and deliberation, the health science deans at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor campus are pleased to announce they have selected the faculty team to be awarded the first-ever Early Implementation Grant (for up to $250,000) in U-M’s groundbreaking Interprofessional Exchange (IP-X) Research Stimulus program.
“Stemming a Public Health Crisis: Using an Interprofessional Approach to Compare the Effectiveness of Two Different Diet and Lifestyle Interventions for Adults with Overweight or Obesity, Hypertension, and Prediabetes or Type 2 Diabetes” has been selected for the funding award.
The project’s principal investigator is Laura Saslow, PhD, Assistant Professor at the U-M School of Nursing. Her interprofessional team of U-M co-investigators includes Richardson as well as Lenette M. Jones, of the U-M School of Nursing; Heidi Diez, of the U-M College of Pharmacy; and Julia Wolfson, of the U-M School of Public Health.
Last year, an IP-X pilot grant was awarded to principal investigator Justine P. Wu, M.D., M.P.H., assistant professor, to build an interprofessional team to provide specialized contraceptive care for breast cancer survivors. The project, Mi Options, is currently recruiting participants.
