As a PhD prepared nurse practitioner with expertise in gerontology and neuroscience, Dr. Herrmann’s experience demonstrates a commitment to clinical practice, research, and teaching. Dr. Herrmann’s area of clinical and research interest is acute neurological injury and acutely injured older adults. Dr. Herrmann’s research examines the recovery of older adults following hospitalization for traumatic brain injury (TBI). Her findings propose provocative insights into factors contributing to recovery of older adults following a TBI. Dr. Herrmann was selected to participate in the Hartford Faculty Scholars Program Policy Leadership Institute in 2011, allowing her to discuss research findings/implications with policy makers in Washington DC.
