Dr. Stephanie Nothelle selected for the National Institute on Aging (NIA) Butler-Williams Scholars Program

Dr. Stephanie Nothelle has been selected for the National Institute on Aging (NIA) Butler-Williams Scholars Program, to be held July 31-August 4, 2017 on the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The Scholars Program provides a format for researchers to learn more about research on aging. 

Dr. Stephanie Nothelle, Clinical Research Fellow, and co-investigator and Dr. Maura McGuire have been awarded the Primary Care Consortium Grant

Dr. Stephanie Nothelle, Clinical Research Fellow, and co-investigator and Dr. Maura McGuire have been awarded the Primary Care Consortium Grant to study the use of the Medicare Annual Wellness visit using data from JHCP primary care clinics.  The Annual Wellness Visit is a co-pay free preventive health visit that has been available for over 5 years.  Primary care clinics across the country have worked diligently to incorporate the Annual Wellness Visit into the clinic workflow, but there is very little published data about its use and benefits.  The few published analyses suggest that there may be disparities in which beneficiaries experience the visit.  Drs. Nothelle and McGuire aim to look at the characteristics of those who get the visit and the impact of the visit on appropriate and inappropriate health care utilization.  Drs. Cynthia Boyd and Jessica Colburn have served as mentors to Dr. Nothelle.

Drs. Sevil Yasar and Colleen Christmas will join Dr. Samuel Durso in co-directing the T-35 MSTAR Summer Research Program for medical students

Drs. Sevil Yasar and Colleen Christmas will join Dr. Durso in co-directing the T-35 MSTAR Summer Research Program for medical students. Johns Hopkins is one of seven national centers (national centers accept first year medical students from around the country), and it is leads all national centers as the first choice among student-applicants. The Johns Hopkins program recruits a diverse class each year of up to 18 students from the schools from around the continental U.S. and from Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The goals of the program are to introduce students to research in aging. Students are paired with research mentors with appropriate projects from the Division, and from other divisions and departments in the School of Medicine. Our program is unique in that it also includes significant clinical experience, a feature that makes it highly attractive to students who have finished year-one of medical school. This important role in developing the future pipeline of researchers in aging.
