Welcome to the research issue of the Lewis School E-News. Our faculty and student researchers have been busy conducting innovative research in a variety of fields, winning awards and receiving new funding along the way. Our faculty and students have received much recognition and had the opportunity to share their expertise in many ways. We are proud of their accomplishments.
First, two non-research recognitions of note. Our Department of Physical Therapy was recently selected for the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia 2017 Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award for Departments and Programs. Also, Dr. Anne Lorio of physical therapy was chosen for the Lewis School Teaching Excellence Award for 2017 and will receive a $10,000 award to further a teaching project. She follows the teaching tradition of previous winner and colleague, Prof. Chip Zimmerman of respiratory therapy, who was the inaugural recipient.
