1. The course council: an example of student-centered learning.

    Journal of Nursing Education 49(6):343 (2010) PMID 20143757

    To promote student-centered learning, a course council was established in a beginning undergraduate nursing course. A student representative was selected by peers to attend a monthly course council meeting with faculty. Representatives were asked to query classmates in their section of eight stu...
  2. Healthcare system use by risky alcohol drinkers: A secondary data analysis.

    Journal Of The American Academy Of Nurse Practi... 22(5):256 (2010) PMID 20500740

    To examine the effects of at-risk alcohol use on patterns of healthcare use and health outcomes. Using the National Health Interview Survey and the Medical Expenditures Panel Survey, a total sample of 4449 adults, mean age 45 (SD 15), were grouped according to responses to the question: "In the ...
  3. The TEA transcription factor Tec1 confers promoter-specific gene regulation by Ste12-dependent and -independent mechanisms.

    Eukaryotic Cell 9(4):514 (2010) PMID 20118212 PMCID PMC2863411

    In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the TEA transcription factor Tec1 is known to regulate target genes together with a second transcription factor, Ste12. Tec1-Ste12 complexes can activate transcription through Tec1 binding sites (TCSs), which can be further combined with Ste12 binding sites (PREs) fo...
  4. Rurality and mental health treatment.

    Administration and Policy in Mental Health and ... 34(3):255 (2007) PMID 17165139

    Diversity within rural areas renders rural-urban comparisons difficult. The association of mental health treatment rates with levels of rurality is investigated here using Rural-Urban Continuum Codes. Data from the 1996-1999 panels of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey are aggregated to provid...
  5. Rurality, gender, and mental health treatment.

    Family and Community Health 29(3):169 (2006) PMID 16775467

    Mental health problems are common and costly, yet many individuals with these problems either do not receive care or receive care that is inadequate. Gender and place of residence contribute to disparities in the use of mental health services. The objective of this study was to identify the infl...
  6. Differential regulation of Tec1 by Fus3 and Kss1 confers signaling specificity in yeast development.

    Current Genetics 46(6):331 (2004) PMID 15558284

    Transcriptional regulation by mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase signaling cascades is a major control mechanism for eukaryotic development. In budding yeast, Fus3 and Kss1 are two MAP kinases that control two distinct developmental programs-mating and invasive growth. We investigated whethe...
