Jennifer Burgher Seaman, PhD, RN, a CCM Research Fellow, was recently awarded a Hartford Foundation Scholarship which will enable her to attend the Summer Research Institute (SRI) for Developing and Advancing Behavioral Interventions, conducted through the Center for Innovative Care in Aging in the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing. The summer research institute, which will be held from June 8 to 12, 2015, allows junior faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and other investigators to design interventions to improve the health and well-being of older adults and their families.
The summer research institute begins with a 3-day “Developing Behavioral Interventions” program, which will provide Seaman with the opportunity to learn more about designing, implementing, and evaluating behavioral interventions. A subsequent 2-day “Advancing Your Intervention” program allows for a more in-depth examination of intervention development, including further training in grant writing, theories of implementation, and economic modeling to better evaluate the cost of interventions.
Through the program, Seaman will be able to consult and collaborate with other researchers in the field, including nationally recognized experts.
The John A. Hartford Foundation is based in New York City, and is committed to improving the health of older Americans.
