Ms. Gharbi’s and Dr. Teixeira-Poit’s funded research project concluded in January, and we are thrilled to share the news that their submitted abstracts were accepted to: 

(1) North Carolina Sociological Association, titled: Examining Social Determinants to Understand the Disproportionate Impact of COVID-19 in Long-Term Care Facilities in North & South Carolina to be presented next week, and
