Lynda D. Woodruff
Professional Development Sponsorship Fund

on Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) in Physical Therapy

This sponsorship fund, established in 2020, is intended to stimulate academic, clinical, and community-based research in physical therapy with a focus on justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) and social inequities that lead to health care disparities. This will be a perpetual fund from which sponsorship(s) will be awarded annually to either or both the GAMER or TIGRR workshops. Priority will be given to applicants that represent members of historically marginalized and minoritized populations. Eligibility for this sponsorship will also be extended to all individuals submitting research proposals that focus on JEDI and health disparities research.

Our aim is to raise a minimum of $2,000 per year to fund one sponsorship. Additional funds raised will allow us to award more than one sponsorship per year. Please consider contributing to this fund in lieu of a registration fee for the LDW Lecture using the PayPal Contribute button below.  For your tax records, please print the receipt from the PayPal transaction.
