TMTalks: Movement: Richard Shields, 2017 McMillan Lecturer

In this episode, we sit down to talk with Dr. Richard Shields, the 2017 McMillan lecturer. Dr. Shields’ research focuses on the impact that movement has on genetics. We answer a few questions:

How do we, as physical therapists, influence genetics? (That’s possible?)
What’s the NIH doing about the lack of longitudinal studies?
What’s the role of the PhD in education, and how do you “get into” research?
