The paper is the product of JabsLabs and faculty-student collaboration with a behavioral scientist at the University of Rochester.  It is a great example of working within and across academic institutions for high quality training and to study health disparities.

Dr. Jabson would like to especially thank PhD student Joanne Patterson for her many contributions to this paper. For example, she provided all of the statistical analyses and wrote the methods section of this manuscript.
