Hersch awarded Veterans Affairs grant

Gayle Hersch (occupational therapy, Houston) has been awarded a $6,000 grant from the Tuscaloosa Veterans Affairs Medical Center for her study to adapt and develop Montessori Activity Programming for use with veterans residing in VA long-term care settings. The intent of the project is to test the implementation and sustainability of the programming in these community living centers by systematically evaluating intervention questions of treatment frequency duration, efficient training approaches for new sites and necessary modifications for uptake in the VA healthcare system.
