The School of Health and Medical Sciences published its latest issue of INS!GHTS Magazine, featuring a research theme. This edition showcases just some of our faculty members' and students' research and the impact it makes.
From a grant-funded project to improve literacy for deaf and hard-of-hearing children, to an evolving study of a pressing healthcare issue — patients’ low medication adherence — SHMS’ faculty and student scholars are making an impact.
The cover of this issue — “Why Research Matters” — reminds us of why our pursuit of knowledge is so important. "It’s the people whose lives are impacted. That's why research matters," writes Dr. Brian B. Shulman, Dean of the School. "The research is for individuals, such as Lori Douma [pictured on the cover], who may benefit from new gait-assessment technologies. It’s for youth athletes and their coaches, who need a safe and healthy sporting environment. Research with a purpose — that is what changes the world of clinical practice."
