Focus of Work


For several years, I have been interested in the professional development of physical therapists working in different roles. This led to an interest in physical therapists' development of cultural competence and provision of patient-centered care. Currently, my work is examining physical therapists' knowledge, attitudes, and practices regarding patients' health literacy.
