Description:
Families provide a critical environment for child development. Primary care is a trusted resource for families of young children, but lacks tools to screen for family health. The Family Health Scale-Short Form (FHS-SF) is a holistic family health measure with preliminary screening cut-offs for poor, moderate, and excellent family health. The tool has not been validated in clinical settings. This study will look at the feasibility, acceptability, and utility of the FHS-SF for families with children ages 0-5. Methods include caregiver and pediatric staff focus groups and analyzing health records. Outcomes include caregiver and child health and prevention services engagement. Read More

Description:
We plan to collect urine samples from patients with Parkinson's Disease, from which we can model the Parkinson's brain. Genetically, the neurons we generate from the urine will match that of the patient donor, making them an ideal way to screen for markers of disease. We will use our urine-derived neurons to assess differences between patient and healthy control cells, as well as a comparison of time-points from individual patients. This study will allow us to gain a clearer understanding of the altered neurochemical state that is so difficult to assess in Parkinson’s patients. Read More
Eligibility:
