Project Title: Soldiers and Stallions: A Quantitative Research Screener on PTSD Equine Treatment
BASIS Advisor: Mr. Hirsch
Internship Location: GallopNYC/Endeavors Stables
Onsite Mentor: Dianne Garcia
This project, in partnership with the Wounded Warrior Foundation, will identify which combination of variables and markers are the strongest predictors of which veterans with PTSD would benefit most from equine-assisted therapy, in addition to existing traditional PTSD therapies, and from which type (THR or EAGALA)? Can this be codified to improve and amplify results of equine-assisted therapy randomized control trials?
Hi Everyone, I hope you’re doing well. I have finally finished my AP Research project presentation and paper after 6 weeks of designing my screener and collecting data. For my future research, I hope to gather more data on a larger scale through the Wounded Warrior Foundation (WW); by distributing to a broader range of […]
Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well. This is the final week before the AP Research presentation and paper submission. Last week I outlined some implications of my results and how they changed my overall perception of my project. Since this week I will only be preparing to present my findings and submit […]
Hi everyone, It’s about a week and a half until the AP Research deadline and I’m currently in the process of writing up my research paper. From the data responses I have found three key implications: 1st, the correlation between time to diagnosis and completion of the treatment indicate that the longer a veteran waited […]
Hi Everyone, I hope you all are doing well. I finally was able to make some progress with my revised screener, gathering 16 individual data responses from distributing my screener through the software company, Survey Monkey. In addition to this, I’m gather other individual data responses from veterans at the Queens VA hospital but will […]
Hi Everyone! I hope you’re doing well this week. As I addressed in the last post I was working towards sending out my survey through the Wounded Warrior Foundation but I ran into a roadblock. Due to my research being the first of its kind that Wounded Warrior has collaborated with, there are many legal […]
Hi fellow students and faculty members! My name is Oliver Kuo and it’s my pleasure to be documenting my journey through my AP Research project. AP Research is similar to the senior project except I have to write a research paper in addition to the end-of-year presentation. For my project, I’m creating a research screener […]
