Grant Submission

A grant proposal titled, "Physical Therapists' beliefs, attitude, knowledge, and practices of patient/family education for modification of cardiovascular risk factors" was submitted to Cardiopulmonary Section of American Physical Therapy Association 2004 Research grant. It was not funded; however, writing a grant proposal and receiving detailed comments from the grant proposal review committee were priceless learning experiences (7/22/04).
