    PROJECTS:

    Dr Jennifer Shin is the recipient of the Maureen Hannley CORE Grant, and has a project underway collecting patient reported outcomes specific to conditions/diseases which trigger an electronic summary to the provider.  University of Washington, University of Michigan, and University of Texas- Southwest are all participating sites.

    Dr Debara Tucci is investigating hearing healthcare access, implementing screening at the primary care level, followed by Red Flag condition questionnaires for patients with newly diagnosed hearing loss at participating CHEER sites.

    The CHEER Migraine study was such a success (manuscript submitted) that discussions are underway for a Migraine follow-up questionnaire validation project.
