Congratulations to Dr. Lisa DiPonio, whose promotion to Clinical Associate Professor has been approved by the Board of Regents. Dr. DiPonio has just started as Chief of service for PM&R at the AAVAMC and is well known for her medical student and resident teaching. Please join me in congratulating her on this well-deserved promotion.
His project is entitled “ Openness to cognitive approach of non-specific chronic back pain: A Randomized controlled trial of emotional awareness verses general health activities to assess openness to cognitive approach of non-specific back pain.”
At the department-wide meeting on April 24th we awarded the Tom Lucas TRAIL Blazer Awards: one to recognize a faculty member, one to recognize a non-clinical staff member, and the other to recognize a clinical staff member.
