Congratulations to Dr. Mark Peterson, Ph.D., Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for receiving a Fulbright Award to Sweden. Dr. Peterson will be traveling to Sweden later in the year for an extended period to expand his internationally known work on health and wellness outcomes in individuals with cerebral palsy as they age into adulthood.

Aside from being a tremendous and very well deserved honor for Dr. Peterson, it is an important recognition of the importance of the work that is being done related to adults with cerebral palsy around the world. Dr. Peterson has an extensive network of colleagues, including in the department in our Adults with Pediatric Onset Disability Group, throughout the University, and throughout the world, including his co-leadership of the International Cerebral Palsy Health Promotion Group.
