Miguel Angel Diego, Ph.D. was given the Ashley Montagu award for enhancing awareness of touch therapy.

Miguel Angel Diego, Ph.D. in developmental psychobiology, has been rewarded the Ashley Montagu award for his exceptional contribution to enhancing global awareness of touch therapy. Diego’s work has demonstrated the efficacy of massage therapy in back pain research and continues to conduct prevention research. Diego has been a research associate professor at the University of Miami School of Medicine in the department of pediatrics since 2010. The Ashley Montagu award is bestowed every other year by the Canadian Touch Research Centre (CTRC) and the Kiné-Concept Institute. The award recognizes devotion to bringing principles of touch therapies into public recognition on a global scale. The president of the selection committee, Daniel Turcotte, notes that this year’s recipient “...is a source of inspiration in the massage therapy research field and his research highlights the importance of touch in our world.” Diego most recent work (in review) is dedicated to Frontal EEG Asymmetry Gender Differences in Infants of Depressed and Non-Depressed Mothers.
