Selena Washington, PhD, OTR/L
I am an assistant professor at Saint Louis University (SLU), and my current research is conducted at SLU and the Washington University Performance, Environment, Participation Laboratory. I have sought out collaborative and community engaged Dissemination & Implementation research directly related to fall prevention and home modifications for diverse older adults and adults aging with disability. I have been included in federal grant applications (HRSA, HUD, NIA grants) as a sub recipient, and established grant funded staff positions and a research team within my department. I am currently engaged as an investigator/trainee within a NIA research supplement grant, Falls: A Marker of Preclinical Alzheimer’s Disease. Through this supplement, I am investigating the relationship between cognition, fall risks/falls; and the functional symptoms of the pre-clinical stage of Alzheimer's disease within adults aging with Down syndrome.
