Message from Deirdre McDowell, PT, PCS
My primary clinical interests are developmental disability, movement disorder, and related musculoskeletal impairment. I believe there is always potential to be better at what we do; and I push myself, as well as those around me to make that happen. This includes getting research into practical application, regardless of resource or location. (I do quite a bit of international work). I think I could best help someone who is developing a clinical practice or program in a low resource area. I am good at networking, and finding things/expertise/resources in difficult spots. I am also good in knowledge translation, and have a special understanding of other cultures (particularly Eastern Europe and the former USSR). This Academy has given quiet a bit to me, and I am ready to give back! My advisee would be willing to work hard (no snoozers please), but I will go above and beyond for anyone who puts in the effort.
