September 25, 2014

SLIS Assistant Professor Dr. Deborah Charbonneau is part of a research team recently awarded funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) for the project “eHealth Activity among African American and White Cancer Survivors.”

The research team, led by Dr. Hayley Thompson at the Karmanos Cancer Institute and Wayne State University School of Medicine, will receive $1.8 million to study eHealth activities among cancer survivors with the goal of improving survivorship planning and care. The population-based study of racially diverse cancer survivors will identify determinants of eHealth activity in this group, provide deep insight into the role of eHealth in survivors’ overall personal health information management, and ultimately inform user-centered design of eHealth tools optimized for survivors.

Congratulations to the WSU research team!
