Health Literacy Grant Awarded to Emory University

January 20, 2012

The National Institutes of Health has awarded a five-year, $2.9 million grant to Emory University's Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing to study the effects of health literacy on medication compliance among African Americans with HIV/AIDS. Principal investigator in the research is Drenna Waldrop-Valverde, PhD, who holds dual faculty appointments in the nursing school and the Rollins School of Public Health. The study is part of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, whose goals include reducing new HIV infections, increasing access to care, and addressing HIV-related health disparities.
