Dr. Spona Jovanovic

Dr. Spoma Jovanovic (Communication Studies) received new funding from the National Communication for the project “Voice, Activism, and Democracy: Free Speech Conference.”

This conference will enable students, community members, and faculty to share their scholarship, creative products, and activist interventions surrounding contested campus and community issues (ex: toppling of the Confederate statue Silent Sam, decisions to disinvite campus speakers, the legacy of Occupy Wall Street, anti-immigration protest and speeches). In addition to academic presentations on free speech, the conference will be further designed to include informal events, intergenerational meetings between students and grassroots activists, and cooperative activities with the goal to enhance political friendships among scholars, community members, and students.

Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz

Photo of Holly Sienkiewicz Dr. Holly Sienkiewicz (Center for New North Carolinians) received new funding from the Kinder Morgan Foundation for the project “Afternoon Academics.” Elizabeth Biddle will be co-principal investigator on the project.

From the abstract:

“In conjunction with the local school district, the CNNC runs Afternoon Academics, an after-school and summer tutorial program that benefits over 150 immigrant and refugee youth. Staffed by AmeriCorps ACCESS members and local university volunteers, the program focuses on improving basic reading, literacy, and math skills. For the diverse populations the CNNC serves, academic achievement is doubly challenging due to language, culture, and economic barriers that many youth experience. Effective after-school programs build upon the students’ academic experience in the classroom. With the implementation of the after-school program, CNNC will provide avenues for young lives to strive for excellence.”

Dr. Dana Dunn

Dr. Dana Dunn, provost and executive vice chancellor, received new funding from The Cemala Foundation for the project “Giant Steps: Enhancing Arts Education and Outreach and Scaling Student Success.”  Dr. Peter Alexander, dean of CVPA, is co-principal investigator on the project.

From the abstract:

“UNCG is requesting funding from The Cemala Foundation to support two strategic initiatives that focus on two strengths of the university: enhancing arts education and outreach, and scaling student success. Through an expansion of the University Concert and Lecture Series (UCLS), UNCG’s College of Visual and Performing Arts will be able to attract more world-class artist while providing longer in-residence periods allowing for additional master classes, lectures, and panels. This expansion will benefit CVPA’s students and faculty, and provide for a richer, broader community impact. The Scaling Student Success initiative will draw from existing programs to create a cost-effective coaching-based academic success program designed to promote higher retention, academic achievement, and graduation rates for an additional 150 new freshmen each year. These initiatives will enrich the Greensboro community through the provision of rich arts programming and highly qualified and workplace ready graduates.”

Dr. Pete Kellett

Dr. Pete Kellett (Communication Studies) is the editor of a new book: “Narrating Patienthood: Engaging Diverse Voices on Health, Communication, and the Patient Experience,” published by Lexington Books. It is part of the Series:”Lexington Studies in Health Communication.”

Through various narrative methods, including personal narrative research, autoethnography, and others, this book shows how diversity and difference play important roles in how people experience illness and health care as patients. Listening to such engaging and personal stories can provide insight, understanding, and advocacy for change. Part 1 of the book focuses on how narrative and narration of experiences can lead to learning, empowerment, and advocacy. Part 2 focuses on differences that make a difference (including race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability). Part 3 illustrates how personal, relational, professional, and cultural aspects of identity intersect to shape patient experiences. Centrally, the book focuses on how patients’ stories can help us to rethink, reimagine, and reformulate what health communication means in practice.

This book is the second in an ongoing series by Kellett to explore communication dimensions of the patient experience, which began with the 2017 solo authored volume “Patienthood and communication: A personal narrative of eye disease and vision loss,” New York, NY: Peter Lang. The upcoming co-edited volume is next in the series and due out in late spring: Kellett, Peter M. & Hawkins, Jennifer M. (2019) (Eds.). “Women’s narratives of health disruption and illness: within and across their life stories.” Lanham, MD: Lexington Books.

A brownbag discussion of the book is being planned for spring semester as part of the HIRN group. Contact Kellett for further details at pmkellet@uncg.edu.

Dr. Jared McGuirt

Dr. Jared McGuirt (Nutrition) received new funding from DHHS Health Resources and Service Administration for the project “Designing and testing a community context-driven, evidence-based virtual avatar coaching approach to improve access to health promotion programs for low-income children and families.” Dr. Omari Dyson and Dr. Christopher Rhea are co-principal investigators on the project.

“Community health promotion programs are important sources of obesity prevention programming for low-income children,” the abstract states. “Unfortunately, due to barriers including time, limited transportation, accessibility, and monetary resources, low-income and rural individuals, who are most impacted by childhood obesity, are often not able to access this type of programming. Virtual peer coaching using avatars, an interactive educational experience more engaging than one way videos, may be a way to reach low-income individuals and people living in rural areas with intriguing health promotion programs that may not have been previously available or accessible, and thus, may help community nutrition education programs save costs while also increasing reach. Therefore, we propose the design of a low-cost virtual reality avatar coaching approach accessible via the internet to augment and increase access to existing evidence-based federal community health promotion programming. In this approach, the Avatar coach will present the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) sponsored and evidence-based ‘Bright Futures in Practice: Nutrition’ curriculum, in an interactive way, so that participants can have an engaging educational experience.”

Dr. John Kiss

Dr. Jianjun Wei

Dr. Jianjun Wei (Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering) received new funding from North Carolina Central University for the project “Carbon nanodots for anti oxidative and radical scavenging reactions.” This project is supported by funds from the National Science Foundation as part of the NSF Excellence in Research grant.

According to the abstract, carbon nanodots are a type of newly engineered non/low-toxic nanomaterials. They have scavenging potential of free radicals, which are highly unstable and reactive molecules in biological systems and other environments. Because free radicals are associated with inflammation, they can lead to potentially serious pathological conditions. This project aims to examine the reaction mechanisms of carbon nanodots in radical scavenging activities towards using these nanomaterials in biological and environmental applications. This project will enhance the understanding of the surface chemistry of carbon nanodots and the roles of the surrounding conditions on carbon nanodots interfacial reactions with a variety of free radicals, and how the carbon nanodots’ free radical scavenging potential is influenced by surrounding biological and biochemical conditions.

Dr. Suzanne Vrshek-Schallhorn

Dr. Suzanne Vrshek-Schallhorn (Psychology) will receive the 2019 Donald F. Klein Early Career Investigator Award from the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). The award, which recognizes outstanding original research and includes a monetary prize, will be presented at the ADAA meeting in March 2019.

Dr. Judith Adams

Dr. Judith Adams (Nursing) recently published an article in the American Association of Nurse Anesthesia Journal in collaboration with Dr. Laura Lambert, DNP, MSN, CRNA, a recent graduate of the Doctor of Nursing Practice. The article was titled “Improved Anesthesia Handoff After Implementation of the Written Handoff Anesthesia Tool (WHAT).” It described the DNP project completed by Lambert during her DNP program, and the development of a tool, the WHAT, to improve communication between certified nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) as they provide coverage for each other in the operating room and between CRNAs and registered nurses (RNs) in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU) as the CRNAs deliver key information to the PACU RNs after surgery. The researchers used an existing tool to identify barriers to communication and then measured the effectiveness of her tool to address these barriers. They found that after implementation of the WHAT, CRNA and PACU RN satisfaction with communication improved significantly. They also found that inadequate handoffs and omissions improved significantly after implementation of the WHAT. Since the project, the WHAT has been adopted by CRNAs and is now a practice standard at the research site.

Dr. Etsuko Kinefuchi

Dr. Etsuko Kinefuchi, an associate professor of Communication Studies and the Academic Sustainability Coordinator, will be attending the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that takes place in Katowice, Poland, from December 3 to 14, 2018.

Dr. Tyreasa Washington

Photo of Dr. WashingtonDr. Tyreasa Washington (Department of Social Work) lectured on “Examining Maternal and Paternal Involvement as Promotive Factors of Competence in African American Children in Informal Kinship Care” at The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) in South Africa.

Addressing social work staff and students, Washington said: “Grandparents or other relatives are raising over 2.7 million children in the United States and research suggests that the birth parents of these children maintain varying levels of involvement with them and their relative caregivers. However, the impact of birth parental involvement on children’s developmental outcomes remains largely unexplored.”

She discussed the role of maternal and paternal involvement – each birth parent’s contact with the caregiver, contact with the child, friendliness to the caregiver, and quality of relationship with the child – on competence levels of African American children in informal kinship care. “Exploring these relationships is pivotal, especially given the various psychosocial benefits associated with social and academic competence,” said Washington.

She is associate professor in Social Work and principal investigator of the Kinship Care Pilot Study.

Dr. Sophia Rodriguez

Photo of Sophia RodriguezDr. Sophia Rodriguez (Educational Leadership and Cultural Foundations) received new funding from the Spencer Foundation for the project “Promoting education equity for immigrant students: Examining the influence of school social workers.”

From the abstract:

“This mixed-methods study focuses on the role of school social workers in promoting access and education equity for vulnerable immigrant students in public K – 12 schools. School social workers may play an important role in shaping school climate and directing immigrant students to key resources, but we know relatively little about how they are doing so—or why, under some conditions, they are not. Beginning from the assumption that school social workers are structurally positioned within schools to shape the (re)distribution of goods and services available to students, we use the framework of street-level bureaucracy to identify the ways school social workers broker resources for immigrant students, and how their own views of immigration influence the choices they make along the way. Our proposed project includes a national survey of school social workers and in-depth interviews with a subset of this national sample. Our contribution promises to advance how we understand access, opportunity, and education equity for immigrant students by highlighting the influence of school social workers within schools.”

Dr. Ayesha Boyce

Photo of Dr. Ayesha BoyceDr. Ayesha Boyce (Educational Research Methodology) received a continuation of funding from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the project “Network for Computational Nanotechnology – Hierarchical nanoMFG Node.”

The evaluation team, led by external program evaluator Assistant Professor Ayesha Boyce and associates from the School of Education at UNC Greensboro, will work closely with nanoMFG Node leadership to integrate formative and summative evaluation into the general operation of the program.  The evaluation will use a value-engaged, educative approach (VEE). The VEE approach, developed with NSF-EHR support, defines high-quality STEM educational programming as that which effectively incorporates cutting edge scientific content, strong instructional pedagogy and sensitivity to diversity and equity issues. A key role of the evaluator is to work closely with program implementers to promote understanding of program theory, implementation and impact.

Melissa Williams

 Melissa Williams (SERVE Center) received new funding from Forsyth Technical Community College for the project “Forsyth Technical Community College Improving Student Achievement through Faculty Development (Title III) Evaluation.” Dr. Wendy McColskey is co-principal investigator on the project.

From the abstract:

SERVE’s evaluation work across the years of this Title III project has been formative and descriptive in purpose, collecting data from participants/users on experiences and summarizing existing data when available to assist in monitoring of project objectives. In this final year, SERVE Center proposes to develop a Final Evaluation Report that summarizes what has been learned from three sources:

  • SERVE Center proposes to develop abstracts of the method and findings of each SERVE report completed over the life of the grant and organize them by year and grant goal/focus (professional development, technology/Starfish, etc.).
  • SERVE will meet with the FT Title III Director to identify a list of Forsyth Tech reports over the last four years relevant to the goals/objectives of the Title III grant. The FT Director will then provide SERVE with the files/copies of the relevant reports.  SERVE will then review the reports and draft an initial summary of findings of the reports relevant to key Title III goals/objectives. Feedback from the FT Title III Director will inform the final form of this summary section.
  • The final section of the report will summarize key stakeholders’ perceptions of grant progress and impact.
