Rural Health Research Institute to receive $450,000 federal grant

Dr. Bryant Smalley, of the Department of Psychology, and Dr. Jacob Warren, of the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health, the co-executive directors of Georgia Southern University’s Rural Health Research Institute, have been awarded a $450,000 federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration to fund Project ADEPT (Applied Diabetes Education Program using Telehealth).

Project ADEPT aims to establish and determine the effectiveness of a new telehealth network that connects a diabetes educator housed within the Rural Health Research Institute to four clinic locations of East Georgia Healthcare Center. In doing so, the project will help under-served diabetics in Candler, Emanuel, Tattnall, and Toombs counties learn how to better manage their condition.
