Dr. Susanna Rosi’s NASA proposal entitled, “Probing the synergistic effects of radiation, altered gravity and stress on behavioral cognitive and sensorimotor functions to predict performance decrement in astronauts” has recently been approved! Dr. Rosi’s research proposal is one of 12 selected from across the Nation to investigate astronaut health and performance during future long-duration missions beyond low-Earth orbit. The data collected from these 12 selected projects will assist in NASA’s long-term plan in exploring the Moon and Mars. Congratulations Dr. Rosi!
Congratulations to Janella Leano, SPT, Class of 2020, on being the first UCSF/SFSU DPT student elected to serve on the UCSF Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) Executive Council. Janella will serve as Vice President of Internal Affairs.
On Saturday April 7th, over 300 kids from all over the Bay Area came to the UCSF's 16th Annual High School Outreach Conference. Members from the DPT1 and DPT2 classes engaged students in fun and functional activities including squat mechanics and balance activities to promote physical therapy. For many of these students, the HSOC was their first exposure to physical therapy, and we have no doubt they were inspired to reach for the stars (with good body mechanics)!
