Debra Moser, PhD, RN—a breakout session participant at PCORI's 2019 Annual Meeting this September—says that her PCORI-funded research study, which compared two approaches to helping reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors among people living in Appalachian Kentucky, was the first of its kind in a region that has been faced with high rates of the issue.
PCORI supports more than a dozen research projects related to obesity, the second-leading cause of preventable death in the US.
PCORI-funded researchers are now implementing their family-centered communication program, which helped reduce medical errors in seven hospitals’ pediatric units, to 21 units across the US.
Among the 11 awarded projects are studies of ways to treat type 2 diabetes, remove kidney stones in children, and treat childhood asthma.
