CCHE is delighted to congratulate HELI 2014 alum Olayinka Shiyanbola, PhD, on her new Collaborative Health Equity Research (CHER) pilot award via the UW-Madison Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR)!
Dr. Shiyanbola has received $50,000 to support her community-engaged project entitled, “Feasibility and Acceptability of a Pilot Culturally Specific Educational-Behavioral Intervention for African Americans with Type 2 Diabetes.”
The goal of this project is to utilize patient and community stakeholders to design and determine the feasibility and acceptability of an educational-behavioral intervention focused on addressing culturally informed illness and medication beliefs, self-efficacy, and medication adherence among African Americans with type 2 diabetes. She will be partnering with the North East Side Senior Coalition.
The award program was jointly developed by the ICTR Community-Academic Partnerships core (ICTR-CAP) and the UW Collaborative Center for Health Equity (CCHE) as part of our shared mission to support community-engaged research.
Dr. Shiyanbola is Assistant Professor in the UW School of Pharmacy Social and Administrative Sciences Division.
Congratulations & best of luck!
