The social impact of a summer camp for youth with Tourette Syndrome
Mike Griswold, recent M.S. in Recreation Management graduate, and Former G.A. in the Graduate School, successfully presented his research down at the ACA National conference in Florida this month. His research focused on the social impact of a summer camp for youth with Tourette Syndrome. This was incredible opportunity for Mike to present his research to a public forum. The experience was capped off with Mike becoming nationally recognized as the recipient for the Marge Scanlin Award for Outstanding Research by a student.
We could not be more proud of Mike and of his Department of Recreation Management, which has a long standing record of outstanding work, including scholarship, on the role of recreation in enhancing the lives of people with disabilities.
