Emilie Conrad felt very passionately about the need for Continuum Movement to enter into the field of research. During the last eight years of her life she partnered with Donnalea Goelz to bring this dream into a reality. Emilie thought movement was the key to health and wellness. Upon Emilie’s death, Donnalea decided to name the research project they had been working on the Emilie Conrad Da’oud Initiative. Currently, a project is underway at the University of North Florida with more exciting plans in development. Donnalea is dedicated to the realization that moving medicine will be understood in a scientific and documented way.
