National Disability Employment Expert (MT UCEDD)

August 30, 2013

National expert on disability and employment? We've got it.

Dr. Catherine Ipsen was among a select few recently invited to present her research findings at the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. The presentation and subsequent meeting with national leaders in disability and employment was focused on the translation of research findings to practice. According to Ipsen it was "an incredible experience to spend a day with leading researchers in the field -- the people I reference in my own work and look to for guidance in an evolving field."

Dr. Ipsen, a graduate of the University of Montana and Director of Rural Employment Research at the University's Rural Institute has been involved in disability health and employment research for nearly 15 years. Undergraduate and graduate students at UM are often involved in Dr. Ipsen's research activities.
