Dr. Carlozzi awarded the 2021 ACRM Mitchell Rosenthal Mid-Career award.
On tonights show, we are having Dr. Noelle Carlozzi, who is an associate professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation, director of the Center for Clinical Outcomes Development and Application at Michigan Medicine, and she is the leading author in a new special edition of Rehabilitation Psychology that examine quality of life in caregivers of persons with TBI.
A moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury affects not only the patient but their caregiver, whose sleep, physical health, social relationships and mood can be negatively affected by the strains of caring for a brain-injured individual.
Teva Pharmaceuticals recently awarded Dr. Carlozzi $250,000 to examine the role of chorea in the day-to-day experience of symptoms (sleep, fatigue and anxiety) and functioning (physical activity and social participation) in individuals with Huntington Disease (HD).
Cutting-edge patient-centered “smart tests” will allow clinicians to evaluate specific quality of life concerns for individuals with Huntington’s disease.
Caregivers of individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) undergo considerable stress that can negatively impact their health-related quality of life (HRQOL), a multidimensional construct reflecting the impact of a disease, disability, or its treatment, on mental, physical, and social well-being.
