Building Trust and Awareness of Parkinson's disease in the African American/Black Community

AA/Black older adults face delays to diagnosis and are less likely to receive high-quality care for Parkinson’s disease. Our team utilized a faith-informed and collaborative approach to develop the PD Movers Storybook, a tool utilizing storytelling techniques to deliver joyful, empowering and educational messages that are culturally-sensitive, interesting, engaging and create a sense of community and connection.

High-Throughput Sequencing Platform for the Diagnosis of Bacteremia in Children with Cancer

Bacteremia is an important source of morbidity and mortality in children with cancer, but current methods to diagnose bacteremia are limited. A novel high-throughput sequencing platform may offer a new way to more precisely and accurately diagnose bacteremia.
