​Part of our collective vision at SHRS is to help create and shape models of care delivery that will serve patient needs well into the future and promote independence. We need to grow beyond the medical environment and expand into the community using innovative models of delivery, especially in light of efforts to expand access to quality care, prevent disease, and provide health care services more equitably. Our research in this area focuses on:

  • Community integration and participation
  • Development, aging, transitions across the lifespan
  • Vocational and life skills training
  • Nutrition and fitness
