Program evaluation research by UF Counselor Education faculty scholar Ana Puig and doctoral student Eric Richardson is described, with quotes by Richardson, in a news story appearing Jan. 12 on the website of WUFT TV-5 and Radio FM 89.1. The piece features the Streetlight volunteer peer support program, in which UF medical education students train volunteers to work with patients aged 13 to 25 who are being treated for a wide range of serious diseases including cancer and cystic fibrosis. The story mentions the collaborative research of Puig (who also is research director in the COE’s Office of Education Research) and Richardson who are evaluating how the peer support program affects patients’ quality of life and their experiences with the program.
