Dr. Buttenheim Awarded Pilot Grants

Alison Buttenheim, PhD, MBA has been awarded two internal pilot grants, one from the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics and the other from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health and Society Scholars Program. The grants are for a study on Retail Pharmacy Vouchers to Promote Tdap Vaccination for Adults Living with Infants.


As part of the study Dr. Buttenheim and co-investigators will provide vouchers and video-based education to adult caregivers at newborn well baby visits to encourage them to get their Tdap, which is a vaccination for Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis at a nearby pharmacy.
