Public health professor awarded $250,000 grant for sickle cell research
Tilicia Mayo-Gamble, Ph.D., has been awarded a $250,000 Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute grant for her project, “Capacity Building to Create a Patient-Centered Research Dissemination Model.”
Mayo-Gamble will use the grant to work with sickle cell patients to increase knowledge and awareness of useful interventions on chronic disease management; increase their recognition of their role in the translation of research to practice; train partners to become patient activists in the process of research dissemination; and engage stakeholders as partners in the design and development of a patient-centered, scalable dissemination model.
Mayo-Gamble is an assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy and Community Health in Georgia Southern’s Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health.
