  • Please Welcome Our New Post-Doc!

    Minhui Liu recently earned his PhD degree in Nursing Science with Statistics Concertation from University of Washington in Seattle and now is a new postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Innovative Care in Aging. Minhui’s research has focused on understanding influences of symptoms on health care use and disseminating evidence-based health promotion programs for older adults. During his doctoral studies, Minhui was funded to conduct a readiness assessment in communities for implementing an US-developed evidence-based group physical activity program in Changsha, China. To advance implementation science, Minhui will work closely with Drs. Laura Gitlin and Sarah Szanton to develop, test and evaluate evidence-based behavioral interventions to help older adults to age in place confidently. Minhui also had a background in psychology and received his bachelor and master’s training in China, and has been in the United States for four years. Please welcome Dr. Liu (mliu62@jhu.edu).
