Research Administrator & Faculty Member Receive Grant

Rebecca Miro, PhD, CP, Research Administrator, and M. Jason Highsmith,  PhD, DPT, CP, FAAOP, Professor, received $14,117 in grant funding from the Center for Orthotic and Prosthetic Learning and Outcomes/Evidence-Based Practice to investigate prosthetic, functional, and clinical outcomes among female amputees. The project will include a systematic review of the literature regarding female amputees as well as a 10-year retrospective record review of female Veterans with limb loss. Female amputees, and specifically female Veteran amputees, are a unique subset of the amputee population yet research in this area remains limited.
