Emory Graham selected to be in first class of El Centro summer scholars
Emory Graham has been selected for the first class of Summer Scholars at El Centro, the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Studies.
The program offers research opportunities for students interested in health disparities topics. The scholars will pursue research projects designed to improve the well-being of minority populations supported by a paid, eight-week internship.
Graham is a student in the Family Nurse Practitioner master’s program at the School of Nursing and Health Studies. Her interest as a graduate nursing student is in maternal health. As a scholar, she will conduct a retrospective chart review in one of El Centro’s pilot studies, a Structural Ecosystem Therapy-Prenatal project aimed at improving medical adherence among pregnant HIV positive women.
She will spend the better part of each weekday participating directly in her research project activity. At the end of the internship, she will present a project report.
Graham earned her undergraduate nursing degree at Emory University. She is the daughter of Jim Beall and Bonnie Graham of Linwood and granddaughter of Buddy and Tomie Troxler of Salisbury.
