Featured Projects

Pathways Project

Over the next two years, the Pathway Project will collaborate with approximately 15 dialysis organizations across the United States to implement supportive (palliative) care practices within dialysis centers and their affiliated nephrology practices. Providers and organizations in the Pathway Project Collaborative will be given the tools, training, and resources to help them put supportive care into practice.

My Way Project

My Way stands for “Make Your Wishes About You”, which is exactly what this project wants to help patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) do. Led by Dr. Dale Lupu, the My Way research project is testing whether meeting with a trained coach can help patients with CKD engage in advance care planning.

RWJF

To raise awareness of the risks created by state pre-emption laws on tobacco control, the research team will examine the enactment or repeal of various tobacco control state pre-emption laws between 1997 and 2017 to determine whether these laws are associated with changes in the county-level smoking prevalence among adolescents and adults, as well as the sales of tobacco products.
