Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars

Veterans Recovery Resources Clinical Scholars from the University of South Alabama, founder and graduate students at South are providing veterans and their families with a whole health approach to wellness. This is the first team from Alabama to be selected for a grant award from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

A team of four faculty were named Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars in the Fall of 2018 through their work with Veterans Recovery Resources. Recipients include Joe Currier (associate professor, psychology department), Jeremy Fletcher (assistant professor of physical therapy), Erin McAdams (assistant professor, physician assistant studies), and Marjorie Scaffa (professor emerita and founding chair, occupational therapy). The three year grant will support the clinicians' partnership with VRR as they implement a unique, veteran-centered approach to healing and well-being. Currier received an internal Research & Scholarly Development Grant in 2015.
