      Robin Dole Receives an Award from the Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association

      At its annual award ceremony, the Pennsylvania Physical Therapy Association presented Professor Robin Dole, director of the Institute for Physical Therapy Education and interim dean in the School of Human Service Professions, with an award for her contributions to the field. Dole was recognized for her work as an active pediatric clinician and educator for more than 25 years practicing in early intervention and school-based settings and engaging in research, consultation and mentorship with children, families, therapists and students.

      The Widener School of Nursing doctoral program was recently represented in two articles in the International Journal for Human Caring. Catherine Stubin, a current student in the doctoral program, published her work that examined the concept of emotional strain in the nursing profession. The second publication was produced by Margaret Gilhooley Marino, a doctoral program alumna, and investigated the development of therapeutic reciprocity in a nurse-patient relationship.
