Congratulations Dr. Judith Cook and her team!
Judith Cook, PhD
Dr. Judith Cook and her team were awarded a five-year grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research to establish a research center on the health and function of people with serious mental illness. The Center’s unique program of research will identify needs of adults and youth during the COVID-19 pandemic, and test a series of interventions intended to help patients access needed medical care, learn evidence-based illness self-management strategies, and rebuild their lives. A comprehensive training program will complement these studies, including an innovative project across our University’s three medical campuses to prepare emerging physicians to best meet the medical needs of people with mental illnesses in the COVID-19 era.
