Congratulations to the Tufts Team Mary Barnes, Sharan Schwartzberg, Gary Bedell, & Elizabeth Marfeo on your recent publication: 
The Group-Leader Self-Assessment (GLSA) Tool: Preliminary Study of Reliability and Validity

Professor Gary Bedell just received a two-year Deborah Munroe Noonan Memorial Research Fund grant titled, “Social Participation And Navigation (SPAN): Adaptation, Usability And Implementation For Youth and Transition-age Young Adult Brain Tumor Survivors.”  He will be collaborating with the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation on this two year grant project.  The primary purpose of the grant is to initially obtain feedback from young brain tumor survivors to inform adaptations to SPAN, an app-based virtual coaching intervention originally designed for teenagers with traumatic brain injury, and then test its usability and preliminary effects on social participation outcomes.

Congratulations to Associate Professor Dr. Keren Ladin on her promotion to Chair of the Ethics Committee for UNOS (United Network on Organ Sharing). The United Network for Organ Sharing is the private, non-profit organization that manages the nation’s organ transplant system under contract with the federal government (HRSA, Dept. of Health and Human Services). Dr. Ladin will be working with the Ethics Committee to advise UNOS and the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network on all ethical matters in transplant policy.
