To complement the MASSAGE Magazine article, “Challenges & Opportunities in Massage Research,” in the April 2014 issue. Article summary: In this interview, MASSAGE Magazine‘s editor in chief, Karen Menehan, interviews Jerrilyn Cambron, D.C., Ph.D., L.M.T., who began her two-year term as the Massage Therapy Foundation’s (MTF) president in March, talks about accomplishments, challenges and opportunities in the field of massage therapy research.
According to Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) President Jerrilyn Cambron, D.C., Ph.D., L.M.T., there are several way a massage therapist can become involved in the foundation. “Massage therapists who feel they don’t know much about research can take a literacy research course,” Cambron says. “If they want to get a bit more involved, they can start writing case reports.”
The MTF’s programs include:
• Practitioner Case Report Contest
• Community Service Grants
• Resources for Instructors
• Research Grant Funding for Instructors
• Student Case Report Contest
• Donation Program
