Jared Chiarchiaro, MD, was recently selected as a Retirement Research Foundation (RRF) scholar in the Program in Behavioral Intervention Research at the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing. The two-week intensive RRF Scholar Program is designed to provide researchers with mentorship and other resources as they develop, test, and implement innovative behavioral interventions for older adults and their families.
As a part of the program, Chiarchiaro, a Critical Care Research Fellow in the Program on Ethics and Decision Making, CRISMA Center, will be paired with a faculty member from the School of Nursing’s Center for Innovative Care in Aging who shares similar research interests. Chiarchiaro will also participate in the Center’s five-day Summer Research Institute (June 8-12, 2015), during which he will develop and advance a behavioral intervention, and will continue to receive personalized mentorship for up to three months afterward
“I’m very excited to have been given the opportunity to participate in the RRF scholars program,” says Chiarchiaro. “I’m confident that this experience will help me develop better interventions, and will allow me to foster valuable collaborative relationships.”
