Nancy Latham, PhD, PT is a Research Assistant Professor in the Health and Disability Research Institute at the Boston University School of Public Health. Her research interest is in applying methods from the field of clinical epidemiology, such as randomized controlled trials, cohort studies and meta-analyses, to rehabilitation and disabilty-related research. She is particulary interested in innovative interventions to extend the benefits of rehabilitation programs and increase adherence to exercise programs long term in people with disability. Dr. Latham has received a Mary E. Switzer Distinguished Fellowship from the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research and was recently an investigator in the Boston Pepper Center Research and Development Core. She has served on review panels for the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research and recently was guest editor of a special issue on Advances in Disability Reserach in tthe journal Physical Therapy. Her current research projects include an NIH funded randomized controlled clinical trial of an exercise intervention to improve function after hip fracture, a pilot study of a "Virtual Exercise Coach" to increase walking in people with Parkinson's Disease and the development of a voice-recognition system to remotely monitor function in older adults.
