DR. GRISETTI TO SPEAK AS PART OF THE FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY LECTURE SERIES

As part of Old Dominion University's year-long Friends of the Library Lecture Series, Gail Grisetti will speak at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 27, in room 151 of the Perry Library.

Grisetti, a faculty member in ODU's school of physical therapy, will discuss the activities and experiences physical therapy doctoral students have had while working in the Dominican Republic. The program, which was developed with the help of Norfolk-based Physicians for Peace, gives doctoral students the opportunity to travel to the Dominican to work hands-on in the area of physical rehabilitation. Students treat amputee patients and present lectures and provide laboratory instruction to Dominican students at Catolica Universidad. The School of Physical Therapy at ODU was a consultant to Catolica as it developed its physical therapy program.

Dr. Grisetti is a member of the Medical Operations Committee for Physicians For Peace and was actively involved with the organization several years prior to the first student trip made in 2003. She received her bachelor's degree from Bard College, and her master's degree in physical therapy and educational doctorate from Columbia University.
