Mary Lundy practiced as a board certified pediatric clinical specialist for 25 years. She has been involved in clinical research and practiced in a varied of community healthcare settings. She has taught in graduate level physical therapy programs for 10 years and the last 5-years have been here at UNF. She enjoys creating community-based learning experiences because they foster student growth, fulfill a need in the community and offer students real-world learning experiences.
Dr. Lundy has served as a faculty leader for two community-based service-learning TLO experiences. These experiences required students to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the classroom to develop health related education programs, provide direct therapeutic interventions and coordinate healthcare services in the community. These CBTL experiences offered students the chance to travel internationally and domestically in order meet identified community needs. During these service trips, students were required to reflect on the service activities in such a way as to gain further understanding of curriculum content, gain a deeper appreciation of their global citizenship and feel an enhanced sense of civic responsibility.
As a Community Scholar, Dr. Lundy has also collected data in the area of student reflection through various forms of media and published the results. The most recent publication can be found in the Journal of Allied Health, Blogging as a tool to promote reflection among dietetic and physical therapy students during a multidisciplinary international service-learning experience, 2012.
