Project ADEPT

Jacob WarrenDr. Jacob Warren, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University and Dr. Bryant Smalley (Department of Psychology), the co-Executive Directors of the 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 will 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, Project ADEPT will help under-served diabetics in Candler, Emanuel, Tattnall, and Toombs counties learn how to better manage their condition.
