Western University of Health Sciences is conducting an interprofessional study to explore walking, balance and visual skills in children ages 7-11.

Faculty from the Department of Physical Therapy Education in the College of Allied Health Professions (CAHP), the College of Podiatric Medicine, and the College of Optometry are conducting the study.

Each child and parent will come for a one-time visit of about 90 minutes on an upcoming Saturday at The Village@Indian Hill, Building 3, Suite 18, 1450 E. Holt Ave., Pomona, Calif. Participants will receive a $90 stipend.
