We are delighted to announce that Dr. Randy Trumbower has received the American Physical Therapy Association’s Eugene Michels New Investigator Award. Its purpose is to acknowledge an outstanding new investigator who has demonstrated a commitment to a defined research theme as exemplified in the professional and research career of Eugene Michels (deceased 1996). He was a former Associate Executive Vice President for Research and Education, who also served as APTA President for two terms (from 1967 to 1973), and as APTA Treasurer (from 1964 to 1967).
The Eugene Michels New Investigator Award recognizes Dr. Trumbower’s contribution to research thus far and more importantly how this contribution is having (at present and in the future) an impact upon our profession. Dr. Trumbower joins other illustrious investigators in our field including Edee Field-Fote, PT, PhD, Stuart Binder-McLeod, PT, PhD as well as others who have received this prestigious award.
Our recognition and thanks is extended to Dr. Steven Wolf for successfully spearheading the nomination process on behalf of our faculty.
Congratulations to Dr. Trumbower on his meritorious achievement!
