ETSU researchers part of team testing medication adherence interventions in vulnerable populations


Two East Tennessee State University researchers are part of an interprofessional statewide team that will study ways to improve medication adherence in vulnerable and disadvantaged populations in Memphis, Knoxville and Johnson City. Med AAAction is led by Dr. Satya Surbhi with the University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center (UTHSC) and funded through a $3.5 million R01 grant from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The study will involve nearly 400 Medicaid and uninsured patients at three large non-profit health centers in Tennessee, including Regional One Health in Memphis, UT Medical Center in Knoxville and Ballad Health’s Johnson City Medical Center.
