Basilia Basin Research Week

Congratulations to the 2016 PhD HARP Awardee!


Congratulations to Basilia Basin, 2016 recipient of our PhD Candidate Hartford Award for Research and Practice (HARP). Basilia will receive $2,000 to use toward the completion of her Dissertation. The focus of Basilia's research is the influence of pets on decision-making for older adults who have chronic health conditions. This is such and important issue and her research will be a valuable addition to our body of knowledge.
