For School of Nursing PhD student Shanae Rhodes, BSN, RN, being one of six 2021-22 Community Engagement Small Project Grants program awardees was a game changer that would enable her to delve further into a topic close to her heart.
She was thrilled to learn that her community-based participatory research project — Mixed Methods Design Study among African American/Black Women Living in Texas Communities: The Pearl Project — would move forward with the help of a $5,000 grant from the Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science (IIMS).
Each year, the IIMS — the home of the Community Engagement Small Project Grants program — awards grants for important projects that support activities to integrate clinical and translational research across South Texas. Rhodes’ project focused on gaining insight about the health care experiences of Black women in the San Antonio and Dallas-Fort Worth communities.

Bias & discrimination, social & economic conditions, and health in Bexar County by De la Rosa, Elisabeth
Community Information Now (CI:Now), a San Antonio nonprofit, is gathering information to help us and our partners improve the well-being and health of Bexar County residents. The survey does not ask for your name, address, or other personal information that could identify you. It should take 5-8 minutes to complete.
Your answers will be combined with all other respondents’ answers. Together that information only will be used to understand conditions across Bexar County.
Thank you for your help! You can learn more about Community Information Now on the web at CINow.info, and in September you can find the survey results at CINow.info/survey.
