Dr. Zoher F. Kapasi is the Director and Associate Professor in the Division of Physical Therapy of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Emory University. As a member of the board of directors of the American Council of Academic Physical Therapy (ACAPT), Dr. Kapasi is dedicated to advancing the physical therapy profession through fostering excellence in academics and creating innovative strategies that guide students and clinicians in the pursuit of the healing arts. Recognizing the unique vision of JHR, he actively encourages and supports the participation of his faculty and students to contribute to the study of humanities and the ongoing development of the first journal of humanities in physical therapy.
The Journal for the Humanities in Rehabilitation is a peer reviewed, multi-media journal using a collaborative model with rehabilitation professionals, patients and their families to gain a greater understanding of the human experience of disability through art, literature and narrative. The purpose of this interdisciplinary journal is to raise the consciousness and deepen the intellect of the humanistic relationship in the rehabilitation sciences.
The Journal of Humanities in Rehabilitation offers a mailing list with periodic updates about new articles.
