Stratton Grants Inspire Collaboration Between MS Health Communication Design and College of Nursing

For the second year in a row, Jefferson’s MS Health Communication Design program partnered with the Jefferson College of Nursing on “The Stratton Foundation Health Communication Design Project.” The Stratton Foundation generously provided the Jefferson College of Nursing with a gift that has funded many unique and exciting, faculty-led health services research pilot projects. Health Communication Design graduate students and select Jefferson alums created posters to make the results of this research more accessible to a wider audience, and they are fantastic! The project organizers are Maribeth Kradel-Weitzel (Assistant Provost and MS Health Communication Design program director), Joanne Robinson (Associate Dean of the Jefferson College of Nursing), and  Gabrielle Santulli (Senior Director of Strategy and Innovation for the Jefferson College of Nursing). The results of this year’s collaboration are as follows:

  1. Designer Laura Moyer with researcher Amy Szajna: “Depression in the Postpartum Period: Exploring a Brief Behavioral Activation Intervention”
  2. Designer Lina Byrne-Dugan with researcher Carol Devlin: “Examining the Relationship between Smoking Status and Surgical Site Infections”
  3. Designer Iman Morsy with researcher Lisa Whitfield-Harris: “Using a Culturally Tailored Mobile Digital Teaching Tool and Social Media to Improve Engagement of African Americans in Clinical Trials”
