PT FACULTY MEMBER DR. LAUREL ABBRUZZESE & OT FACULTY MEMBER PHYLLIS SIMON RECEIVE IRVING INSTITUTE PILOT AWARD

Posted by vanessa on November 8, 2017

We are pleased to announce that PT faculty member Dr. Laurel Daniels Abbruzzese and OT faculty member Phyllis Simon have been granted a $30,000, 2018 Irving Institute Community Based Participatory Research Pilot Award for their proposal “Facilitators and Barriers to Participation in Evidence-based Programs in Urban Senior Centers serving LGBT older adults.” This is in partnership with SAGE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the older LGBT community.

The Community-Based Participatory Research Scholars and Awards Program (CBPR Program) is a capacity-building opportunity to stimulate community-engaged research between Columbia University faculty and community/faith-based organizations. The CBPR Program offers structured training and practical experience in community-based participatory research (CBPR). Working in academic and community partnered pairs, participants co-develop a pilot research proposal that they submit to the Irving Institute for funding consideration.

L-R: Phyllis Simon and Dr. Laurel Daniels Abbruzzese
