  • Bright IDEAs | Ruth Werner's Favorite Piece of Art

    Posted by: Kristen Lutz on Wednesday, February 18, 2015

    More »

    You may think our favorite theater major turned massage therapist mastermind has a special place in her heart for a piece by one of the greats like van Gogh, Picasso, da Vinci, Monet, Michelangelo, or one from a female artist like O'Keeffe or Kahlo. Perhaps it's a photograph or a fascinating architectural piece. What you will soon learn is that Ruth paints with a broad brush when it comes to her choice in magnificent artwork. We shouldn't be surprised!


    OK, so Ruth did specify that this is her favorite piece of research-related art. Still, this provides Ruth the foundation for her research presentations and we are so very fortunate she will be presenting Making Research Relevant: Findings and Applications for 5 Conditions at our Inaugural IDEA Conference May 1-3 in Needham, MA! Remember, research CEUs are REQUIRED to renew your Board Certification.
