Anna Nourse Headshot

As the University of South Carolina Patient Engagement Studio Manager, Anna Nourse has had the amazing opportunity to work with a variety of stakeholders including, but not limited to, patients, researchers, and clinicians. The PCORI-funded project that she has been involved with has been a diabetes-focused Eugene Washington Engagement award. The patient populations and conditions that she has worked with since being involved in patient-centered research have included children, older adults, LGBTQ+, low income, low health literacy/numeracy, racial/ethnic minorities, women, veterans, rural, urban, disabilities, and multiple chronic conditions.

Anna grew up with a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder and a learning disability and is the mother of two children under the age of 5 years. She takes immense pride and responsibility representing parents/caregivers and individuals with learning disabilities and ADHD diagnoses. Her life experiences include growing up in a rural community, living overseas in the United Kingdom for over 5 years, and moving back to the US to an urban area. She is currently in school completing her Master’s in Public Health.

Health Conditions Health Conditions These are the broad terms we use to categorize our funded research studies; specific diseases or conditions are included within the appropriate larger category. Note: not all of our funded projects focus on a single disease or condition; some touch on multiple diseases or conditions, research methods, or broader health system interventions. Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
