Wesley Lefferts, PhD

Dr. Lefferts is an integrative vascular physiologist broadly interested in how the vasculature contributes to health and disease risk. He seeks to leverage our understanding of these relationships to identify behaviors, such as exercise, that can modify disease risk through their effects on the vasculature. Within this general framework, he is specifically interested in brain health and the potential to improve cognitive function by targeting vascular health and function.

Mary Hannan, PhD, APRN, AGACNP-BC

Dr. Hannan’s overall research interests focus on kidney disease and physical activity.  She has over ten years of experience as a nurse practitioner, primarily working in nephrology.  Dr. Hannan plans to investigate in the influence of sedentary time, physical activity, and frailty on adults with chronic kidney disease.  Through this work, she plans to develop behavior change interventions, specifically physical activity interventions, to improve the health and outcomes of patients with chronic kidney disease. Dr. Hannan is also funded as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholar Postdoctoral Fellow.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it's exactly "additionalAnchor").
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a "#" in front of it. (Example, we have a "chief" section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to "#chief")
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor's HYPERLINK WITHOUT the "#", i.e. "chief".
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there's a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
