Neurologic & Older Adult Journal Club

A Journal Club is sponsored by the NOA clinic for medical practioners interested in the rehabilitation of older adults and those with neurologic conditions.  The purpose of the Journal Club is to critically review the current literature on topics of particular interest to those treating these patient populations and to encourage integration of this information into patient care.  The NOA Journal Club meets in McKinly Laboratory, Room 337, University of Delaware. 

If you are interested in participating contact Darcy Reisman, PhD, PT Assitant Professor and NOA Clinic Faculty Liaison at (302) 831-0508 or e-mail
