Sandra Cardenas ’16 and Angela Kueny, Assistant Professor in Nursing, worked together to research herbs or other alternative therapies or supplements that may interact with bleeding or clotting (coagulation) with Amish patients with hemophilia.
Cardenas reflected on her research experience with Kueny, "I was on the front lines, writing the HSRB (Human Subjects Review Board) form and article, creating surveys, and diving into the literature review. This experience taught me the skills and discipline needed to conduct qualitative research as I head toward graduate school.”
Professor Kueny commentated, “This research project will help Sandra better understand her role as a nurse, why it is important to understand cultural and home context of patients we serve, and consider research for her future.”
