Professor Paul Branscum receives public health research grant

Kinesiology, Nutrition, and Health Professor Paul Branscum has been awarded a $25,000 grant from AiZtech Labs. The grant aims to facilitate student engagement in testing a revolutionary app designed to prescreen for COVID-19 through a simple eye scan, akin to taking a selfie on a mobile phone. Notably, Professor Branscum's focus lies in exploring students' experiences, thoughts, and beliefs surrounding the use of this innovative technology. This forward-thinking approach promises valuable insights into the human aspect of adopting such cutting-edge health screening methods.
