Dr. Michael Tevald, associate professor of Physical Therapy and director of Post-Professional Programs, received the first-ever Acute Care Research Grant from the Foundation for Physical Therapy. The $40,000 grant will enable the development of evidence-based rehabilitation strategies for acute care physical therapists to address effects of surgery, hospitalization, and illness on physical function.
For this grant, Dr. Tevald was featured in a “Foundation for Physical Therapy Research” news piece, which noted that he “has spent most of his research career focusing on skeletal impairments. His clinical experience has been primarily in acute care. This combined background has prepared him to be the first-ever recipient of the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research Acute Care Research Grant.”
