Grants & Contracts Received

  • Deanna Jung, Assistant Professor of Nursing, Kristina Fortes, Assistant Professor of Nursing, and Jane Williams, Lecturer in Nursing, received a $124,060 grant from the Office of Statewide Health Planning & Development (OSHPD) Song-Brown Program. The project, “Integration of Standardized Patients in the BSN Undergraduate Program,” will provide funds to increase the recruitment of Standardized Patients to cover the adult lifespan, from young adult to older adult. Standardized Patients will participate in both summative and formative Objective Structured Clinical Exam simulation as part of classroom instruction. Expanding and integrating the School of Nursing Standardized Patients program will allow an increase in the number of student encounters with live patients throughout their undergraduate BSN programs and Simulation classes.
  • Melanie Horn Mallers, Professor of Human Services and Director of the Center for Community Collaboration, and Katherine Bono, Chair and Professor of Child and Adolescent Studies, received a $74,806 grant from the City of Stanton/North Orange County Public Safety Task Force for a third year of funding for the project titled, “Fullerton Resilient Families Program.” This program builds resilience in young families through improved parent-child attachment, executive function skills in children, and active coping with stress through mindfulness techniques. During the funding period, the program will be implemented at several local Head Start facilities and at a transitional living center for homeless families called HIS House.
  • Joshua Yang, Associate Professor of Public Health, received $15,000 for year-five funding from the American Lung Association of Orange County for a project titled, “Achieving Tobacco-Related Health Equity Among California’s Diverse Populations.” Dr. Yang serves as the evaluator on a project with two objectives: (1) for two Orange County cities to pass ordinances to ban outdoor smoking and use of electronic cigarettes in outdoor dining areas, and (2) for two Orange County cities to pass ordinances banning smoking in multi-unit housing complexes.
  • C. Jessie Jones, Professor Emeritus of Public Health and Director of the Center for Healthy Neighborhoods, received a $52,000 grant from St. Jude Hospital so that Social Work interns can provide mental health counseling services to low-income students in the Fullerton School District.
  • Archana McEligot, Professor of Public Health and Director of the Center for Cancer Disparities Research, received $194,307 for year-five funding from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, for “Big Data Discovery and Diversity Through Research Education Advancement and Partnership (BD3-REAP).” This multidisciplinary program trains underrepresented undergraduate students in Big Data science (BDs) exploration, computation, and synthesis that incorporates BDs didactic learning while providing BDs research experiences for students.
  • Mikyong Kim-Goh, Professor of Social Work, received a $1,487,818 grant from the Regents of the University of California, Berkeley, for the “Title IV-E Stipend Program-MSW Project.” This federally-funded California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) stipend program provides two years of support to full-time MSW students enrolled in the child welfare concentration. Part-time students also are eligible for stipends that cover tuition, books, and travel.
  • Stephanie Vaughn, Professor, of Nursing, received $495,532 in year-three funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for “EMBRACE: Enrichment Markers of Better Relationships, Academics & Cultural Enhancement.” This program provides an evidence-based, systematic approach to incorporate and optimize effective academic approaches and support systems for underrepresented minority and disadvantaged undergraduate and advanced practice graduate students. The major purpose of the EMBRACE Program is to address social determinants that create student challenges.
  • Michael Boytim, Lecturer in Nursing, received a $27,645 grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), for the “Nurse Anesthetist Traineeships” program. These funds provide traineeship support to students in the Nurse Anesthesia program. This program aims to increase the number of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists nationally, who are well prepared to deliver evidence-based, high-quality anesthesia care.

Fast Facts: "Vietnamese Americans are disproportionately burdened by hepatitis B. However, certain subgroups, particularly those born outside of the USA and those with a hepatitis B family history, appear to be at significant increased risk. Interventions targeting such individuals could help address hepatitis B's burden in this population."  Alice Lee (Public Health), BMJ Open 2019;9:e029616
