Tuesday, April 02, 2013 Section on Geriatrics Donates $50,000 to the Foundation 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.
