Faculty Member Published in Medical Journal

Congratulations to Ms. Ann White who has been published in the Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care. A member of the medical administration faculty at ECPI University’s Charlotte/Concord campus, she is part of a team of scholars working on AIDS/HIV research that has produced an article entitled,

Adolescents’ perceptions of a mobile cell phone text messaging-enhanced intervention and development of a mobile cell phone-based HIV prevention intervention.

Funded in part by a grant from the National Institute of Nursing Research, the article examines African American adolescents’ perceptions of mobile cell phone (MCP)-enhanced intervention and development of an MCP-based HIV prevention intervention. The results indicate a general receptiveness among the target audience for such outreach efforts using text messaging campaigns to provide education to parents and adolescents.
