ReACH Director, Dr. Barbara J. Turner featured on Texas Public Radio's Texas Standard

On Friday, March 31st, Dr. Barbara J. Turner, the Director of the Center for Research to Advance Community Health (ReACH) will be featured on the Texas Public Radio show Texas Standard to discuss a recently published study that looks at how much the Hispanic community knows about chronic pain.  Dr. Turner and her team conducted a population-based survey representing 8.8 million Hispanic residents of five Southwestern states who did not have chronic pain.  The data from this study reveal serious gaps in knowledge about chronic pain including misunderstanding about relying on narcotics to treat the disease. This is the first study to reveal poor knowledge about chronic pain in a large population of Americans and reinforces the urgency of launching a broad-based educational campaign about chronic pain and its care.

ReACH pilot project poster wins 2018 TSNRP Regina Aune Perseverance Award

Roxana Delgado, PhD and Kimberly Peacock EdD presented data from Dr. Delgado's ReACH funded pilot project at the 2018 TriService Nursing Research Program Dissemination Program. Their poster entitled " Supporting the Wounded, Ill and Injured: Military Caregivers Health-Related Outcomes" won the 2018 TSNRP Regina Aune Perseverance Award.  Colonel (retired) Regina Aune demonstrated perseverance as she helped to carry 80 babies and young children to rescue helicopters despite suffering a broken foot, broken leg, broken vertebra and numerous injuries other injuries she sustained when the C-5A Galaxy she was on crashed during the first Operation Babylift mission leaving Vietnam. 

"Kimberly and I are extremely humbled by this recognition. We believe our military caregivers are the ones we present this to.  Military caregivers are very much well represented in the leadership and bravery of Col Aune. Our Hidden Heroes rise above their challenges and adversities to care for our wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans," said Dr. Delgado.

Drs. Delgado and Peacock have been invited to Brooke Army Medical Center where the Nursing Research Department and representatives of the TriService Nursing Research Program will present the award.

Congratulations on this well deserved honor Dr. Delgado and Dr. Peacock!
