As aging generations anticipate remaining active longer and as seriously injured younger patients seek new treatments, there is an increasing demand for rehabilitative services with an interdisciplinary approach to facilitate rapid recovery of mind, body and spirit.
Adding a Physical Therapy Gait Research Lab is a critical priority for Brenau’s first clinical licensing doctorate program. The lab will be housed within the Brenau Downtown Center, but funds are needed to outfit the lab, which is designed to analyze a person’s walking patterns before developing patient therapy plans. High-tech spaces like this lab will foster collaboration with the local medical community while helping Brenau attract high quality faculty to our program.
At the Brenau North Atlanta/Norcross campus, we will add a multidisciplinary clinic in which Brenau students in clinical counseling, occupational therapy and physical therapy will gain hands-on experience seeing patients and working with the same collaborative approach used in the professional field.
