National Interest Waiver Petition for a professor of occupational therapy:

Attorney Kornfeld obtained an approval of the National Interest Waiver (NIW) for a professor of occupational therapy at a U.S. University. The professor’s work in the fields of occupational therapy, rehabilitation sciences, and gerontology and her pioneering research in treating and preventing diseases of the elderly are of substantial intrinsic merit and provide a prospective national benefit due to the dramatic increase in health care expenditures that have been forecast as the baby boomers reach the retirement age in the next two decades.

Attorney Kornfeld skillfully focused the attention of USCIS on the professor’s unique multidisciplinary background and expertise in occupational therapy, rehabilitation sciences and gerontology to set her apart from others in her field.
