NIH funds MESA Center research
"The name ‘MESA’ is a Spanish word meaning ‘table’ in English," said Carrie Jo Braden, Ph.D., R.N., associate dean for research in the School of Nursing and director of MESA. "This is a metaphor for ‘bringing ideas to the table’ for a meaningful exchange and sharing between nursing faculty and students in Michigan and Texas. Research collaboration and mentoring will be the foundation of the center."
The center’s research will include childhood obesity along the Texas/Mexico border, coronary heart disease in women and risky sexual behavior in minority adolescents.
