Dr. Marissa Cruz, PT, DPT, CBIS, Board Certified Clinical Specialist in Geriatrics, Clinical Director, NeuroRestorative Southeast MI, is a co-author in the book “The Guide to Providing Physical Therapy in the Home 4th Edition.” These efforts were part of a three and a half year project that was produced with funding from the American Physical Therapy Associations’ Home Health Section.

Dr. Cruz is the lead author of two chapters, “The Musculoskeletal System” and “Safety in the Home.” The book was a collaborative effort from colleagues throughout the USA and is now available for purchase.
