Summary

Depression contributes directly to disability following a stroke and is the single strongest predictor of quality of life. Treatment of depressive symptoms is associated with better functional recovery and return to activities of daily living. Resistance training can effectively improve post-stroke mobility and has the potential to serve as an alternative (non-drug) anti-depressant treatment option. The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of resistance training on post-stroke depressive symptoms.

Summary

The proposed project recognizes the relationship between food insecurity and social determinants of health. By developing a strong clinic/organization linkage between specific Palmetto Health clinics and FoodShare, we will be able to determine if increasing access to fresh produce through an every other week produce box, participation in cooking classes, and clinician reinforcement improves health outcomes for patients who are identified as food insecure.

Summary

The objective of this proposal is to evaluate teleconsent, a novel telemedicine informed consent system, in order to study the advantages of teleconsent, the barriers to its adoption, and its impact on the informed consent process. The goal of this work is to improve the adoption of this technology and improve the overall research process, with reduction in travel burden on research participants and regulatory burden on clinical investigators. Facilitating enrollment into clinical trials will in turn accelerate the development of new treatments.

Summary

We propose a prospective observational analysis of near visual acuity and stereopsis in pseudophakic children. Visual acuity analysis will be standardized based on age per PEDIG protocols. Results will be stratified by age and by monocular versus binocular surgery. Children will be assessed in their appropriate corrective lenses to control for myopia as a confounding factor. Refractive error will be measured to optimize visual acuity measurement and assess for the potential role of astigmatism in preservation of near visual function.
