    •  Final Project Reports
    •  Determining barriers to and effective strategies for improving calcium intake among elderly African Americans in urban congregate meal sites.  A master's thesis completed by S. J. Giudice (May 2000).  Report submitted to Faculty Research  Grant administration.  The University of Memphis.   A logical extension of my dissertation (please see Smith and Knight), this project explores the state of calcium nutriture among African Americans.  First, I sought funding to develop ethnically appropriate high calcium foods for African Americans (i.e., wrote an unfunded USDA proposal).  However, the  dialogue with USDA led to three questions: 1) What are the barriers to calcium consumption among African Americans (i. e., quantitative methodology?; 2) Are culturally appropriate calcium nutrition intervention methods effective?; 3) Are culturally appropriate high calcium foods needed and, if so, which foods should be enriched?  Exploring the calcium
      nutrition question among African Americans is a valid question because of the severity of osteoporosis among older African American women and because the problem, if a nutrient deficiency disease among African Americans, may be easily corrected.
    • Characterizing process control of fluid viscosities in nursing homes.  Prepared by T. L. Smith (May 2001).  Report submitted to the American Society of Quality, Research Fellowship Grant Program, Milwaukee, WI.  Thus far, the work has yielded four presentations and two manuscripts, accepted for publication or accepted with revisions.  Two manuscripts and one presentation are in process.
