Newsworthy: Recently honored with the American Physical Therapy Association's Helen J. Hislop Award for Outstanding contribution to Professional Literature

Residence: Mt. Lebanon

Age: 60

Family: Married with two sons and two grandchildren

Education: Bachelor's degree in physical therapy, University of Buffalo, 1979; master's in physical therapy, Washington University, 1984; doctorate in physical therapy, Washington University, 1990

Occupation: University of Pittsburgh professor of physical therapy, associate dean for research and vice president for education and research for the Centers for Rehabilitation Science

Background: Delitto, whose clinical work specializes in the treatment of low back pain, has been honored for scientific writing as well as research in physical therapy and has won multiple awards for excellence in clinical research.

Quote: “The field of physical therapy has changed drastically since 1979. The training is so much more in-depth, and we're now an access point where people can get first contact with health care. I think physical therapists as well as other health care professionals, including occupational therapists, pharmacists and nurse practitioners, can play a major role in helping more people access health care as we face physician shortages.”
