On $1.5 Mil. NIH grants and $500 hammers
« on: April 24, 2007, 08:28:09 PM »
Poz reports that an Ohio University health psychologist, Heckman recently received a $1.5 million, four-year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute of Nursing Research to nationally test the effectiveness of a telephone support group for older adults with HIV. For my tax dollars, this sounds so utterly ridiculous that I may need a psychologist to help me stop laughing.

According to his website, "Seniors often feel embarrassment or out-of-place among what is usually a gathering of young people at traditional AIDS support groups. The seniors have different needs, which may not be met, or they may be uncomfortable talking about issues, such as sex, among younger people.

"The telephone, as a tool for delivering support, is financially and psychologically easier for many older adults, said Heckman, who has spent the past eight years conducting AIDs research among the elderly and in rural populations. "

The site goes on to say that:

"Other Ohio University research, led by Heckman, has found that seniors living with HIV also report problems such as suicidal thoughts, depression, stress and ignoring other age-related health issues. He and two graduate students presented these and other related findings at the annual conference of the Society of Behavioral Medicine, held in Washington, D.C., last month."


For Pete's sake! Half the freaking seniors in this country report these kind of problems! $1.5 milllion dollars of my tax dollars for this horseshit?

I want a refund!
