Fong Chan, Professor of Rehabilitation Psychology
We are pleased to announce that VCU has received a grant to fund a new Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Employment of People with Physical Disabilities. The grant was awarded for 4.4 million dollars over 5 years by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), US Department of Education. The purpose of the RRTC will be to conduct advanced research, training, technical assistance, and dissemination activities specifically to improve the employment outcomes of individuals with physical disabilities. Dr. Paul Wehman is the Principal Investigator and Dr. Katherine Inge is the Project Director. We are also excited to announce our collaboration with Dr. James Krause and his staff at the Medical University of South Carolina, and Dr. Fong Chan at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The new VCU-RRTC will have multiple other partners and collaborators too numerous to mention in this announcement. Watch for additional information soon on our website.
