Congratulations, IPTF Research Grant Recipients!

Due to the very successful #GivingTuesday campaign and other Illinois Physical Therapy Foundation (IPTF) fundraising activities, the IPTF Board is delighted to be able to award three $1000 Research Grants for 2018.  There were five excellent research grant applications submitted making the decision very difficult.  The following physical therapists will be receiving the grants:

  • Dawn Drumm, PT:  Use of a Tummy Time Intervention and Parent Education in Infants Born Preterm:  A Random Controlled Trial
  • Julie Schwertfeger, PT, DPT, MBA, CBIST:  Community Coping Interventions for Stroke
  • Richard Severin, PT, DPT, CCS, PhD(c):  Respiratory Muscle Performance:  A Predictor of Clinical Outcomes in Morbidly Obese Patients

Stayed tuned for the research summaries and Spotlight on Research presentations once the research is concluded.   Updates will be posted on the IPTF website:

It is never too early to start thinking about your own research project.  Applications for the 2019 $1000 Research Grants will be accepted through September 15.  Learn more here

The IPTF is proud to support physical therapy research right here in Illinois.  Please visit the IPTF website for current research projects, the research grant application, scholarship opportunities, and public education projects.  Your support of the IPTF makes all of these possible.  Thank you for your continued support of the IPTF.
