CCHE would like to share a recently published article by HELI 2011 Alumni Tisha M. Felder, PhD, MSW! Dr. Felder is Assistant Professor, College of Nursing and Core Faculty, Cancer Prevention & Control Program, Arnold School of Public Health at University of South Carolina.
Dr. Felder contributed to a recent Special Issue of Progress in Community Health Partnerships focused on the NCI Community Networks Program and her article, “Mentoring and Training of Cancer-Related Health Disparities Researchers Committed to Community-Based Participatory Research,” focuses on survey results from the training initiative of this national community-based program. The paper describes the academic, mentoring, training, and work-life balance experiences of CNPC-affiliated trainees (early stage faculty and students). HELI colleague Dr. Christine Pfund, and others are referenced, as some questions included in the survey were taken from Dr. Felder’s experience at HELI 2011.
Dr. Felder shared, “I wanted to share details about the issue and specifically our mentoring manuscript as it relates to the wonderful work that you all are doing with HELI. To date, HELI remains as the most meaningful career development training I have attended.”
Sincere thanks to Dr. Felder for sharing with us and continuing the strong connection to our HELI mission! Congratulations on a great publication!
