Dr. Han-Hung (Floyd) Huang was born in Taipei, Taiwan. He is a licensed physical therapist in both the United States and Taiwan. Dr. Huang practiced in Taiwan for two years before he came to the United States and completed his PhD degree in Rehabilitation Science at the University of Kansas Medical Center in 2011. Dr. Huang joined ASU’s Physical Therapy Department in 2012. He is currently the course coordinator for the Musculoskeletal System Examination and Management courses; he also instructs students in Clinical Anatomy and Evidence-based Practice in Physical Therapy.
Dr. Huang is the director of the Diabetes Research Lab at ASU and has engaged in diabetic research since 2006 with several outstanding peer-reviewed publications. Currently, his research focus is on how physical therapy can benefit individuals with diabetes or pre-diabetes. Through individualized interventions, such as exercise and/or physical agents, Dr. Huang believes that physical therapists can serve various diabetic populations better and more accurately. The long-term goal is to develop evidence-based guidelines and protocols for physical therapists when tailoring treatment plans for various diabetic patients.
