Dengel to serve as faculty adviser on ICI grant

Donald Dengel, Ph.D., associate professor of kinesiology, will serve as the faculty advisor on a four-year, $600,000 grant housed in the Institute of Community Integration. The grant, Partnership in Wellness: A Training Curriculum for Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, focuses on adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities who require ongoing daily supports, have limited readings skills, and would benefit from learning about improved nutrition and activity. The project is delivering a research-based, universally-designed, health promotion curriculum that addresses the unique learning needs of this population.

Pat Salmi, Ph.D., is the co-Principal Investigator of the grant.
