American Public Health Association (APHA) Conference Presentation

Research Assistant Joelynn Muwanga represented the ICHAD team at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association (APHA) held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in early November. She presented a poster out of the ICHAD Suubi+Adherence study that explored the role of pediatric quality of life and physical activity on self-reported medication adherence among the study participants. Analysis of this data revealed that pediatric quality of life was a positive predictor of medication adherence but found no significance with physical activity. The team also found that self-reported medication adherence was reduced as participants get older. Stay tuned for more details about these interesting findings!
