April 17 — Nursing professor awarded seed grant for feminist project
Jessica Draughon Moret, assistant professor for clinical nursing at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, was awarded a seed grant by the Feminist Research Institute for her project, “Empowerment or Further Assault on Female Autonomy? Exploring Issues of Race, Class and Power in Post-Sexual Assault HIV Prevention.” The institute provided $46,000 to six interdisciplinary feminist research projects for the 2017-18 Seed Grant Competition. The annual competition supports collaborative faculty projects that use feminist approaches to engage in transformative, transdisciplinary research. Jessica’s project builds off a previous study that examined factors associated with accepting and adhering to post-sexual assault HIV-prevention treatment. The research focuses on how issues of race, class and power impact whether post-sexual assault HIV-prevention treatment is offered, accepted and completed. The results of this study will inform the creation of an intervention to improve HIV-prevention treatment follow-up as the continuation of a developing program of research.
