The “CRANNY” Study sought to test the efficacy of cranberry capsules in the prevention of urinary tract infections in nursing home residents. The study was funded by the National Institute on Aging under a grant and approved by Yale University Human Investigation Committee.
The Yale School of Medicine Certificate of Participation also recognized Hughes Health’s commitment to clinical research. Dureza is pictured with fellow Hughes nurses and staff members, including Vice President Mark Finkelstein, far left, at the ceremony.
