Hey HOSA members,
Andres E. Morales
2010-2011 HOSA at UF President
Dr. Carolyn Tucker's Behavioral Medicine Research Team is looking for excellent research assistants for the upcoming semesters. Excellent research assistants are students with a competitive GPA and who are committed to excellence in relation to every pursued task and goal.
This research team conducts culturally sensitive, community-based interventions anchored in Health Self-Empowerment Theory with the ultimate goal of reducing national health disparities, particularly among low-income, ethnic/racial minority populations. All research team members actively interact with community member participants and are instrumental in carrying out health-promoting interventions. Research assistants will also play important roles as members of the newly launched Health Disparities Research and Intervention Program (HDP) at the University of Florida. Specifically, research assistants will be heavily involved in implementing the Health-Smart Clinic Program, an employment site-based health self-empowerment program designed to increase engagement in health promoting behaviors among staff members at participating outpatient health care clinics.
At this time, we are accepting applications for unpaid undergraduate research assistant positions that start Fall 2010 and must continue through Spring 2011. The position requires a full two-semester commitment of a minimum of 6 hours a week. Selected research assistants are also required to attend all weekly team meetings, generally held on Tuesday evenings from 5-6 pm.
Research assistants will receive PSY 3912 Research in Psychology credits for the first and second semesters (2 credits per semester).
