Ahlquist Accepted to U-M’s Integrative Medicine Scholars Program

Assistant Professor of Architecture, Sean Ahlquist, was recently accepted to the U-M Faculty Scholars Program for Integrative Medicine.

This year-long, multidisciplinary program in integrative health care provides selected faculty from the Medical School and colleges across Michigan campuses, and schools of Business, Dentistry, Social Work, Nursing, Art and Architecture, Music, Kinesiology and Public Health with the opportunity to explore the theoretical principles, clinical practices, and evidence related to complementary, alternative, and integrative therapies.

The purpose of the program is to extend resources to faculty that can be applied to teaching, research and clinical care in the emerging field of integrative health care. Ahlquist’s topic is the establishment of a protocol combining behavior-based therapies and multi-sensory environments as the foundation for research and teaching in adaptive tactile technologies focused on developing skills in social interaction and communication for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
