Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member Rachel Jones awarded Rutgers-Newark Provost Award
Date:11/26/2007

(NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 26, 2007) Rutgers College of Nursing faculty member Rachel Jones has been selected to be the recipient of the Rutgers-Newark Provosts Award for Community Engagement in Research. This award is for research of broad scholarly significance based in whole or in part on data from Newark or Northern New Jersey.

Steven J. Diner, Rutgers-Newark provost, established the Provosts Awards for Community Engagement to acknowledge the valuable relationships Rutgers-Newark faculty, staff and students created with Newark and Northern New Jersey. The awards are presented to members of the Rutgers-Newark community who have demonstrated leadership in connecting the campus with the community. They awards are: Award for Community Engagement in Teaching and Learning, Award for Community Engagement in Research, Student Community Service Award, Faculty/Staff Community Service Award and Community Partner Award.

Jones, assistant professor at the College of Nursing at Rutgers, The State University, was honored for research into the potential of urban soap opera videos to communicate HIV risk reduction in young adult urban women.

The stories in the soap opera videos were based on stories told by women in focus groups held in Newark and Jersey City. These focus groups yielded insight into both the problems faced by women in acting to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS and the solutions as well. The relationship between individuals and organizations in the community with our team of faculty, students, actors, technology experts and a filmmaker, was essential to achieving this research. It was a labor of love in the fight against AIDS, said Jones, a Boonton Township, N.J. resident.

The acting involved students and graduates of the Rutgers Newark Visual and Performing Arts Department, as well as professional actors. All filming took place in neighborhood settings. The videos were created for viewing on small hand held computers. Th
