Filtered Sunlight Phototherapy


One of our current grantee’s, Dr. Tina Slusher, recently hit the mainstream news for her Thrasher sponsored project bringing filtered sunlight phototherapy to children in Africa.  This therapy shows great promise for treating neonatal jaundice in areas of the world where electricity and maintenance of equipment are serious issues.  Her study was recently presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting in Vancouver, BC and a journal article in Pediatrics.
