ACTS 2 photo recognized

March 9, 2017

A photo by Monica Nemat, a member of the College of Medicine’s ACTS 2 team, has been accepted for the Art in STEM exhibition at FSU’s Dirac Library on March 30. “ACTS 2” is the shorthand name of the African-American Alzheimer’s Caregiver Training and Support Project 2, a five-year project coordinated by Rob Glueckauf, professor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Medicine.

Nemat, an FSU undergraduate, is Glueckauf’s DIS (Directed Individual Study) student and has been working with ACTS 2 since late 2014.  "I decided to use this project as a platform to exhibit the importance and the beauty of this tailored method of telehealth," she said.

Her photo has been incorporated into a poster to spread the word about ACTS 2, which uses telephone counseling to relieve caregivers’ stress and offer them support.
