TODAY! "Time-Out" Session- Patient and Caregiver Zen Hour
First Published 1/16/2019

***Families, caregivers, patients, staff and students are welcome to attend these sessions***

January 16th Session- 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A

Topic: Patient and Caregiver Zen Hour

Overview: Caregivers, family members, and patients are invited to participate in the Caregiver Zen Hour which offers relaxing and comforting activities to decrease stress and allow time for themselves.  Activities include: pet therapy, aromatherapy, adult coloring, conversations with Pastoral Care, inspirational reading, and a massage chair.

Please encourage caregivers, family members and patients to attend! 

"Time-Out “is a weekly educational/support session for caregivers and family members of UTMB patients, to support them in their adjustment and maintenance of their caregiving role.  These sessions will not be tied to a specific diagnosis- all caregivers and family members are welcome.  The hope is that these sessions will provide a chance for them to have “time out” to relieve some stress, have a little fun, build on care giving skills, decrease burnout and affirm that they are not alone in the role of caregiving.

These sessions are facilitated by UTMB students and staff and will occur every Wednesday at 2pm in Jennie Sealy 2.506A.  Sessions will last around 30 minutes and will address topics that falls into the following categories: Relaxation, Self-Care, Discharge Planning and Medical Topics.

If you have questions or are interested in facilitating a session, please contact Savannah Parks at sjparks@utmb.edu or 409-266-7542.

The purpose of this pilot funding is to support aging-related research that will realistically lead to external funding. Pilot awardees will have access to clinical research resources, such as a research coordinator, provided by the Pepper Center.

Proposals are encouraged from all investigators interested in initiating studies on aging.

The pilot proposal selection will follow a 2-step process: 

  • Step 1: Letter of Intent & Biosketch – Interested investigators should write a brief letter of intent describing in one page or less their research idea and how this idea would lead to external funding in the area of aging. Letters & biosketches can be submitted to Stephanie Burt (Pepper OAIC Administrator) at Route 0177 or via e-mail to stburt@utmb.edu.
    • Deadline for receipt of the letter of intent and biosketch is Friday, February 8, 2019.
    • Letters of Intent will be evaluated by the Pepper Executive Committee, and those selected will be asked to submit a full proposal.
  • Step 2: Full Proposal–If selected to submit a full proposal, a 5-page proposal in NIH format will be required outlining your research plan.  If requested, a research mentor and biostatistician can be assigned to assist with development of the proposal.
    • Deadline for receipt of the full proposal is Friday, March 15, 2019.

Full proposals will be evaluated by the Pilot Selection Committee, comprising of members of the ITS Scientific Review Committee, Pepper Center leaders and an independent external reviewer with specific expertise in the area of the pilot application.
