Premier Partner in Research Award

The Foundation is pleased to award the 2017 Premier Partner in Research Award  to The Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy.

Over the years, the Foundation has presented this award to a select few who have made generous and long-standing contributions critical to the success of the Foundation and its mission. To date, the Academy has donated over $460,000 in support of geriatric physical therapy research. Through their support, 97 awards have been made possible since 1973. Most recently, their support has allowed the Foundation to award Margaret Danilovich of the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern, the Geriatrics Research Grant to “implement successful aging intervention to reduce frailty.”
