May 12, 2023
Safiyyah Okoye, PhD, an assistant professor in the College of Nursing and Health Professions, Dornsife School of Public Health, and the Drexel FIRST cohort, was mentioned in a May 11 Knowridge Science Report article about research she co-authored on potential fall-risk factors — including environmental, health and function — in older community-living adults in the U.S., both with and without dementia.
Okoye was also quoted in a May 2 Philadelphia Inquirer story about a Mt. Airy community babysitting co-op.
