Child and Family Studies (CFS) Professor Christina Dillahunt-Aspillaga, PhD, Associate Professor Tammy Jorgensen Smith, PhD, doctoral student Deveney Ching, and academic collaborators Zacchues Ahonle and Jennifer Sanchez presented on multicultural and ethical considerations of behavioral health at the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) 99th Annual Conference in Chicago on Nov. 11. The event highlights the latest research at the world’s largest conference for interdisciplinary rehabilitation research.
The panel presentation provided researchers and clinicians with current information surrounding multicultural behavioral health treatment and rehabilitation planning across the rehabilitation continuum. Shared knowledge of cultural competence in rehabilitation medicine may influence rehabilitation, treatment planning, and community reintegration outcomes. The presentation abstract will be published in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
