The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the Physical Therapy Program welcomed a new Program Director, Michael Harris-Love, PT, MPT, DSc, FGSA on August 1 as Professor and Associate Dean of Physical Therapy Education. He will hold the new Joanne Posner-Mayer Endowed Chair in Physical Therapy announced in May and will continue his role as a Veterans Affairs (VA) investigator through his affiliation with the Eastern Colorado Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center. Dr. Harris-Love was previously the Associate Director of the Human Performance Research Unit and founding Co-Director of the Rehabilitation Research Post-Doctoral Fellowship Program at the Washington D.C. Veterans Affairs Medical Center (DC VAMC) and held faculty appointments at the George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health and George Mason University Department of Rehabilitation Science. We hope you will stop by the reception at Krugman Hall on Wednesday, September 4 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. to get acquainted with Dr. Harris-Love. The Department owes a debt of gratitude to the outgoing Director, Margaret Schenkman, PT, PhD, FAPTA who has built a PT program ranked within the Top-15 nationally and who is also well known for her leadership in Parkinson’s research.
