Janet Bettger, ScD, FAHA, along with co-lead Catherine Staton, MD, from Emergency Medicine, have been awarded funding from Duke Bass Connections to launch a Global Alliance on Disability and Healthcare Innovation (GANDHI). With collaborators in 10 countries, and faculty from 7 Schools, including faculty from our own department (Richard Mather III, MD; Michel Landry, PT, PhD; Amy Pasta, PhD; and Adam Goode, PT, DPT, PhD), the team will examine disability from multiple perspectives and cultures. The Alliance will support the development of innovative interdisciplinary approaches to promote functional independence, community reintegration, and an improved quality of life after an acute injury or illness.
