Research at the SAY Clinic

Since opening the SAY Detroit Physical Therapy Clinic in 2011, students and faculty from Wayne State have conducted research that we have presented at conferences around the country. Research opportunities with the clinic give PT students exposure to an evidence-based practice environment. We are an active member of the Pro-Bono network, and student attendance at conferences helps our leaders network with other pro-bono clinics to guide the future direction of the clinic. Check out some of the research we're working on or have completed recently below:
