Congratulations to HELI 2019 alumna Susan Andreae, PhD, MPH, on her recent grant award!
Dr. Andreae received a UW-Madison Contemporary Social Problems Initiative grant for her project “Enhancing Maintenance of Standing Up and Moving more in Older Adults.” The project includes delivering a workshop (consisting of four weekly sessions with a refresher session at eight weeks). The project will examine two strategies to bolster maintenance of standing up and moving more over the long term. One strategy involves supplementing the existing intervention curriculum with more content on long term maintenance. The other involves supplementing the curriculum plus adding peer support (i.e., buddy pairs). Learn more here.
Dr. Andreae is a co-investigator on the project with Jane Mahoney, MD, and Principal Investigator Kelli Koltyn, PhD. See the UW School of Education’s announcement here.
Five projects representing five UW schools and colleges were chosen out of a field of 36 submissions for funding. The two-year grants support research that promotes economic prosperity, enhances social and psychological well-being, and improves health outcomes.
