TWU Nursing Faculty Receives $10,000 Research Grant


HOUSTON — Dr. Ann Malecha, assistant professor of nursing in the College of Nursing at Texas Woman's University-Houston Center, is the recipient of the 2003 American Association of Occupational Health Nurses Foundation Research Grant. One nurse researcher receives the $10,000 grant each year.

Dr. Malecha's research study is titled "Effectiveness of Screening for Intimate Partner Violence in the Workplace: A Study with Occupational Health Nurses." During the study, a group of occupational health nurses will be trained to screen for intimate partner violence at their work site and measure outcomes. A control group of nurses also will be included in the study.

Dr. Malecha worked on her grant proposal as a protégé through TWU's Chancellor's Research Fellows Program. Her mentor in the program was Dr. Judith McFarlane, professor of nursing at TWU's Houston Center. The Chancellor's Research Fellows Program pairs TWU faculty who have strong potential for obtaining external funding for research with mentors who have a successful record of research publication and grants from federal agencies or other sources.
