Suresh K. Bhavnani, PhD, and Co-PI Elizabeth Lyons, PhD, MPH, have received a Faculty Development Educational Innovations Grant from UTMB’s Academy of Master Teachers. Their project, titled "Teaching Dietetic Interns How to Transform the Weight-Management Mental Models of Patients,” will use a visual analytical method to solicit and transform the misconceptions of patients related to health behaviors such as weight management. It will consist of two main initiatives: (1) teaching dietetic interns how to use the method in Dr. Lyons's course, Weight Control Management (NUTR 6304), and (2) establishing the Technologies for Research and Education to Advance Dietetics (TREAD) Laboratory for developing and testing such interventions with cancer survivors.
