Military Medical Researchers Honored For Commitment to Warfighters

Congratulations to our very own Dr. Chris Connaboy for being recognized by the Department of Defense and receiving the 2021 Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) Outstanding Research Accomplishment for Academia-Industry award.
Dr. Christopher Connaboy from the University of Pittsburgh is recognized for contributions related to the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injury, specifically, research in the area of 'movement signatures', contributing to a package of behavioral monitoring approaches that can be implemented remotely and economically in order to monitor a warfighter's health status. This work will ultimately provide military commanders with information to support decision-making related to training, injury risk management, and return-to-duty planning.

Dr. Connaboy received his award and a letter from Dr. Terry Adirim, the Assistant Secretary of Defense!
