Dr Wagahta Semere awarded a 3-year NIH KL2 Research career development grant

A note from her mentor, Dr. Dean Schillinger:

Dr Wagahta Semere was just awarded a 3-year NIH KL2 Research career development grant that beautifully brings together her interests and commitments to caregiving, vulnerable populations, chronic disease and health communication.

This support is a natural extension of her success as an RWJ Clinical Scholar while at Yale, a UCSF Watson Diversity Scholar, and a prior CADC grant awardee.

In addition to advanced research training, her proposal involves both descriptive work on > 1 million secure messages exchanges between patients with diabetes and their primary care physicians at Kaiser, as well as interventional work in the SF Health Network. I will have the pleasure of heading up a wonderful mentoring team that includes colleagues from UCSF and Northern CA Kaiser Division of Research.

Her proposal is entitled:

"Leveraging Secure Messaging for Diverse Diabetes Patients and their Caregivers"

Please join me in congratulating her on achieving this important milestone in her career.
