Elizabeth Rhodus, PhD, assistant professor in the department of behavioral science and a team member from the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, was selected to receive the 2024 Cordelia Myers AJOT Best Article Award, one of the highest honors in the nation for research articles in the field of occupational therapy. Research was completed under Sanders-Brown’s National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded T32 program while Rhodus was a postdoc, focusing on evidence to train caregivers of people with dementia to help them age in place.  

April also marks Occupational Therapy Month, celebrated nationally by the American Occupational Therapy Association. It is a time to honor this vital profession that helps people live life to its fullest, no matter their health condition, disability, or risk factors.
