May ReACH Scholars Meeting

The next ReACH Scholars meeting will be held on Friday, May 19th from 7:30 am to 8:30 am.  Please join us in person or virtually for a presentation by Rebekah Salt PhD, RN.  For more information please contact Sarah Lill.

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 Scholar Bertha "Penny" Flores, PhD, APRN, WHNP-BC Selected for the National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF) PCORI Hispanic Patient-Centered Health Research Mentorship Program

ReACH Scholar Bertha "Penny" Flores, PhD, APRN, WHNP-BC was recently selected for the the National Hispanic Health Foundation (NHHF) PCORI Hispanic Patient-Centered Health Research Mentorship Program. This unique mentorship and training program provides individualized mentoring by Hispanic senior faculty researchers, networking with PCOR experts and other researchers in Hispanic health equity, skills building for career development, a two day in-person PCOR training with a special session to present your research.  Congratulations Dr. Flores!
