Welch Center Core Faculty member Ebony Boulware, MD, MPH, and the PREPARED Study team she leads have won a Bronze Telly Award in the health and wellness category for their non-broadcast video titled Preparing for Kidney Treatment: You Have a Choice. The video is intended as an educational aid for patients who have learned they need kidney treatment. “Tellies” are prestigious awards bestowed on the best productions in video media in areas not recognized by the “Oscars,” such as local and regional television, web commercials, and non-theatrical film and video productions.
Other Welch Center faculty members on the PREPARED team include Patti Ephraim, Dr. Raquel Greer, Dr. Deidra Crews and Dr. Bernard Jaar. Welch Center trainees and research staff on the study team include LaPricia Lewis Boyer, Jessica Ameling, Courtney Cook, Hema Ramamurthi, Dr. Tanjala Purnell, Dr. Hamid Raab, Dr. Julio Lamprea-Montealegre and Dr. Temitope Olufade.
Dr. Boulware is no newcomer to Telly Awards. She and her TALK Study team received a Bronze Telly Award in 2008 for their educational video Talking About Living Kidney Donation that was aimed at patients and patients' families.
In addition, Core Faculty member Dr. Felicia Hill-Briggs and her team on Project DECIDE won a Bronze Telly in 2011 for their educational video, DECIDE to Move! Physical Activity for People with Type 2 Diabetes.
Congratulations to Dr. Boulware and the whole PREPARED Study team for their award-winning work!
