Dr. Edward receives $15, 000 from the College of Nursing Pilot Research Program

Jean Edward, PhD, RN, was awarded $15,000 from the College of Nursing Pilot Research Program to fund her study titled “Examining availability of health system and community-based programs aimed at promoting health insurance literacy and informed healthcare decision making among rural, Appalachian consumers.” Surveys, key informant interviews and focus groups will be collected from providers and information intermediaries, such as community health workers and other outreach workers, serving Appalachian communities. Findings will provide crucial evidence on availability and adequacy of programs and resources to support consumer needs in a changing health care climate.
