Interprofessional Health and Aging Studies research news

Laura Santurri and Elizabeth Moore, faculty in the Interprofessional Health and Aging Studies (IHAS) department, have received an InQuery Collaborative Grant for their research, Interstitial Cystitis Hope Project. The purpose of the study is better understand the experiences of people living with interstitial cystitis (IC), a chronic condition of the urinary system, who self-report coping with the condition in positive and effective ways. Results of the study will be shared with the IC community and may serve as a foundation for further research. Santurri (pictured left) is director of the program and an assistant professor. Moore (pictured right) is also an assistant professor.

Moore recently was a co-presenter of a poster at the American Physical Therapy Association’s NEXT 2018 Conference and Exposition in Orlando, Florida. The lead author of the poster, Can lower extremity strength and lower extremity blood flow predict the score on the Functional Gait Assessment?,” was Marcia Himes ’17 (DHSc).
