  • Dr. Weaver is a research scientist with a PhD in social psychology. She has conducted research with spinal cord injury and Parkinson's disease patients on preventing/managing complications of these conditions. She developed the new MS program in Implementation Science in the Parkinson School.


    Education
    • Loyola University Chicago, Masters             
    • Loyola University Chicago, Ph.D.               
    • SUNY College at Plattsburgh, Bachelors           

    What prompted you to pursue your field?

    I wanted to help people but did not think I could do hands on medicine. Research allows me to test interventions and programs to determine what works best and then share that information with health care providers.

    What's it like to teach at Parkinson?

    I have not had the opportunity to teach yet.

    What does your department's focus mean to you?

    Implementation science means to do what is needed to get best evidence used in everyday healthcare practice.

    Why is this area of study important at this point in time?

    There are inequities in Healthcare. Implementation science has a goal of making evidence based care available for all.

    What would you tell a student about why your field is exciting/important/the potential impact s/he could make?

    You can change things for the better.

    What "called" you to/attracted you to Loyola?

    I went to school at Loyola and was excited to come back in a faculty role.
