Kanika Bansal

Kanika Bansal, a Rehabilitation Science doctoral student and Brooks/UF-PHHP Research Collaboration Scholar, was awarded a $1,000 travel scholarship from the Force and Motion Foundation for her poster presentation entitled, “The Effect of Forward versus Backward Locomotor Training on Forward Propulsion during Forward Walking Post-Stroke,” which she presented at the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting in February.

The Foundation awards travel grants to aid promising graduate students on their paths to becoming the scientific leaders of tomorrow, and Kanika truly shows her dedication to the field in all of her work. Congratulations on the scholarship – it is sincerely well-deserved!
