A recent $50,000 donation by the
Section on Geriatrics to the Foundation for Physical Therapy will be allocated
toward the Marilyn Moffat Endowment Fund for Geriatric Research ($25,000) and
the Center of Excellence for Health Services/Health Policy Research ($25,000).
Established in 2007, the Marilyn
Moffat Endowment Fund for Geriatric Research supports emerging investigators
examining methods to facilitate the translation of research into current
physical therapy practice with aging adults.
The Center of Excellence is a new
initiative with a goal to provide health services and health policy research
training to prepare physical therapist scientists to examine physical therapy
resource utilization, costs, and quality. The purpose of the research is to
identify the most effective ways to deliver, organize, finance, and assess
outcomes of health care services.
