Dr. Choi elected 2013-2014 ISSR Scholar
The Institute for Social Science Research (ISSR) University of Massachusetts has elected Dr. Jeungok Choi as one of its 2013-2014 Scholars. During her year as an ISSR Scholar, Dr. Choi will develop a grant proposal for the project entitled, "Improving Discharge Communication using Pictographs." The aims of this project is to 1) compare the effects of Web-format, or paper-format pictograph-based discharge instructions, and 2) verify casual links between pictograph-based discharge instructions in both web and paper format and comprehension, recall, and health outcomes.
The ISSR Scholar Program provides a course release for an interdisciplinary seminar of six social science faculty from across the university to meet regularly through the academic year to develop individual research grant proposals. The seminar will include ongoing presentations and discussion of faculty research proposals, advice on grant writing and submission, information about grant agencies, and opportunities to meet national scholars for consultation.
Social science faculty of all ranks and schools are encouraged to apply, regardless of external funding history. See eligibility criteria and application instructions.
