Wu, Jia-Rong Dr. Jia-Rong Wu

Congratulations to Dr. Jia-Rong Wu who received a Junior Faculty Development Award.

In this project, she will explore the precipitating factors of hospitalization for heart failure exacerbation, including non-adherence to medical recommendations. She also will identify demographic, psychosocial and clinical predictors of longer hospital length of stay. The findings from the study will provide: (1) evidence to identify patients with heart failure who are at increased risk for hospitalization and a longer length of stay, (2) direction to develop and pilot test effective interventions to improve adherence, and (3) preliminary findings to write an NIH K23 grant.
