Cockroft Project to Offer Mobile Chronic Disease Care Site

Assistant Professor Marianne Cockroft, PhD, RN, has received full funding from Christ the King Lutheran Church in Cary, NC to implement a Chronic Disease Self-Management Project in the area.

The Project will make weekly visits by nurse-directed mobile healthcare van to Western Wake Crisis Ministry and Dorcas Ministries to provide care, education and skills training to individuals and families managing chronic illness. It will also serve as a clinical education site, providing a valuable opportunity to train future healthcare providers as they transition to care and learn how best to serve marginalized populations.

Congratulations, Marianne!
