Congratulations to Dominique Como Inaugural Kielhofner Doctoral Research Scholarship Awardee

Congratulations to our first Kielhofner Research Scholarship Awardee, Dominque Como, PhD Student, University of Southern California, Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy, Exploring the Occupation of Oral Health in African American Families.

Grounded in occupational justice and utilizing a health disparity theoretical lens, the proposed project will address health disparities that exist in AA children with and without ASD by exploring the factors that keep this population from fully achieving quality oral health care through.  Together, these aims will help illuminate the barriers to oral care that AA children with and without ASD face, and how prospective dental interventions can be tailored to help address these issues. 

"This study is one of the first to examine oral care occupations in AA families, and will be pivotal to informing future research projects that help mitigate health disparities for AA children.”

Dr. Gary Kielhofner, DrPH, OTR, FAOTA, was one of the most influential and transformational figures in occupational therapy. Central to Gary's devotion to the science of OT was the development of new research talent. Please make a gift to help us support the future of OT, strengthen evidence-based practice and improve the quality of care. Your generosity will secure this scholarship for generations of OTs.
