College of Public Health alumni Desiree Burroughs-Ray, MD, MPH, and Nikiya Simpson, MBA, are co-authors on a recently published journal article about pre- and post-assessments for the HIPPY for Health Homes program. The study, “HIPPY for Healthy Home Program: Results of Pre and Post Surveys Addressing Indoor Air Quality Contaminants in Arkansas Homes,” is in the October issue of the Journal of Community Medicine and Health Education.

Lead author on the study was Alesia Ferguson, PhD, who is an Associate Professor in the COPH Department of Environmental and Occupational Health. Dr. Burroughs-Ray was involved with the project as part of her MPH preceptorship. Mrs. Simpson provided technical assistance with the web-based training modules used in the program.
