Project ROSE News

Our National Advisory Board met on June 13, 2014 and the study team received helpful feedback about working with enrolled patients, data collection, using similar interventions in other medical settings, and optimizing the impact of patient navigation. This meeting was a great opportunity to create an overview of the project, and discuss both the victories and challenges encountered thus far. The next NAB meeting will be in June 2015.

Our Community Advisory Board met on March 5, 2015 and had productive discussions about project progress and next steps. The next CAB meetings are set for: June 4, September 24 and December 3.
