“DPT Program Receives Funding Grant to offer a University Course Disability, Resilience & the Mortal Self” in Spring of 2017

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence has funded a $2,000 grant to the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program to offer a University Course entitled “Disability, Resilience and the Mortal Self” in Spring of 2017. The principal faculty members involved in submitting the proposal are Drs. Sarah Blanton, Bruce Greenfield, Zoher Kapasi and Aaron Stutz (at Oxford College). Dr. Greenfield took the lead in this submission and builds on the Coalition of Liberal Arts (CoLA) Spring of 2016 course in which a number of faculty showcased their labs earlier this year. We enjoyed wonderful participation from Emory and Oxford College students and also attracted very prominent faculty on our campus as guest speakers in this course. We believe the success of this course has led to additional funding to offer “Disability, Resilience and the Mortal Self” Spring of 2017 as a university course next year.

Please join us in congratulating the faculty members in submitting a compelling course proposal that has successfully garnered this funding.
