Join the College of Health and Human Service faculty and Centers/Institutes staff as we talk shop, connect, learn and inspire collaboration for present and future research opportunities! The next CHHS Shop Talk is happening Wednesday, March 16. Shop Talk will happen several times a semester, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Henry Madden Library in Room 3212. Each session will highlight the research and work of faculty within the college.

First up this semester is Dr. Jennifer Roos, assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy. She will discuss the research track line she is implementing on a peer mentoring model development within the Doctor of Physical Therapy program.

In addition to teaching, Roos is a licensed physical therapist, serving the Central Valley for the past 15 years in specialized areas of chronic pain, aquatics and women’s health.

Roos is also an alumna of Fresno State, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science, a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy through the Fresno State/UC San Francisco join Doctoral program.

Please note: Shop Talk is currently open only to CHHS faculty and staff. Light refreshments will be provided for this event.
