6-week NIH Funded Research Experience in Rural Public Health Disparities

We recently received information about an NIH-funded summer research program in Rural Public Health.   Current Juniors are eligible to apply.

The initiative is a 6-week summer program at Georgia Southern University hosted by the Rural Health Research Institute and funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The initiative, called DESRE (Disparities Elimination Summer Research Experience), is a paid, hands-on research experience for undergraduate and graduate students.  During the program, students engage in cutting-edge rural health disparities research and receive training in the unique factors associated with addressing health disparities. Students work with and learn from a team of experienced faculty researchers from both Georgia Southern University and Mercer University.

A brief advertisement with more information as well as the application and FAQs can be accessed at the link below.  The application deadline is Monday, December 1st, 2014.

The website to learn more about the program and access the application is: www.GeorgiaSouthern.edu/rhri/desre
