Position title: Assistant Professor, Occupational Therapy Program

Kristen Pickett, PhD focuses on collaborative and community-based research methods aimed at positively impacting health outcomes for older adults, especially those with Parkinson disease (PD), who have limited access to effective forms of physical activity. Her Sensory Motor Integration Lab delivers physical activity interventions in-home via telehealth and through group classes held at community-based facilities. She works with community partners to conduct research for individuals with PD, as well as rural-dwelling and other under-served older adults, who lack access to facilities for physical activity.
