Drs. Mezuk and Concha awarded community engagement grant

Drs. Mezuk and Concha have been awarded a grant from the VCU Council for Community Engagement to support their partnership with the YMCA of Greater Richmond Diabetes Programs. The project, called “Strengthening a community-engaged research partnership to promote diabetes self-management in Richmond” will support mixed-methods research on the challenges people face when participating in a diabetes class and the ways they overcome those challenges, as well as the development of a Community Advisory Board to guide broader diabetes research efforts.
