Marla Beauchamp, Ayse Kuspinar and Brenda Vrkljan Receive 2019 Strategic Alignment Fund Award

Congratulations to Drs. Marla Beauchamp, Ayse Kuspinar and Brenda Vrkljan (leads) on their award of $501,357 for their “M3- Monitoring my Mobility” project from the 2019 Strategic Alignment Funds (Provost Office, McMaster).  This project is a mobility self-monitoring tool for older adults and their caregivers.  Marla Beauchamp, Ayse Kuspinar, Julie Richardson and Brenda Vrkljan proposed an idea from a previous project that is already partially funded pending revision.  It is a multidisciplinary project by Marla Beauchamp with co-PIs from engineering, business, geography, mathematics, social sciences and humanities involving a large cohort study measuring all aspects of mobility in 1500 older Canadians.  The application to Strategic Fund would be tailored to expand on what can be done with the cohort and how long participants could be followed.  Well done!
