Congratulations to two of our PhD students, Emma Beisheim, PT, DPT and Allison Miller, PT, DPT, NCS, on their Promotion of Doctoral Studies (PODS) scholarship awards from the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research (FPTR)!

Dr. Beisheim is working in Dr. Meg Sions’ lab. When asked about the focus of her PhD, Dr. Beisheim states, “The majority of adults living with limb loss experience persistent post-amputation pain, but our ability to evaluate and treat post-amputation pain is rather limited. In our work, we hope to identify novel methods of evaluating and monitoring post-amputation pain using low-cost, non-invasive clinical tools, to ultimately improve care for individuals living with limb loss.”

Dr. Miller is working in Dr. Darcy Reisman’s lab. Allison’s PhD work focuses on understanding factors that affect daily walking activity in individuals with stroke. Allison’s research uses step activity monitors to understand the walking patterns and activity levels of individuals with stroke in the real-world setting.
