Four physical therapy students in the School of Health Sciences  at Quinnipiac University have joined forces with the Connecticut Collaboration for Fall Prevention (CCFP) to study the benefits of tai chi.

The CCFP has provided support for a comprehensive “Tai Chi for Better Balance in the Community” program to increase access to tai chi for older adults at risk of falling.

This Capstone Research Project for physical therapy third-year graduate students is underway thanks to the efforts of Quinnipiac PT students Casey Abramski, Jennifer Fulton, Katherine House and Katie Petersen.
