PT prof on ABC-TV news Sunday

4:51 p.m., Nov. 3, 2005--Irene Davis, professor of physical therapy, director of the Running Injury Clinic at the University of Delaware and director of research for Drayer Physical Therapy Institute, will be featured during a news segment on barefoot running on ABC News’ World News Tonight at 6:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 6.

Davis, an expert in running-related injuries, will talk about a new trend toward barefoot running, the development of shoes that mimic barefoot running and injuries that could result from inadequate accommodation to barefoot running.

Davis received a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 1977 and a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy from the University of Florida-Gainesville in 1978. She earned her master’s degree in biomechanics at the University of Virginia-Charlottesville in 1984 and a doctoral degree in biomechanics at Pennsylvania State University-State College in 1990. She joined the UD faculty in 1989.
