Respected stroke recovery researcher speaks at uOttawa on Dec. 3

Dr. Janice Eng, a leader in stroke recovery researcher, is joining HSF Canadian Partnership for Stroke Recovery researchers on Tuesday, Dec. 3 to talk about “Strategies to increase upper and lower extremity physical activity after stroke“. Dr. Eng’s innovative approaches in rehabilitation research have translated to substantial health benefits for people with stroke . She is a recipient of a Michael Smith Senior Scholar Award and dedicates most of her time to clinical research. She has developed novel exercise interventions and has undertaken randomized controlled trials to demonstrate their effectiveness in improving mobility, fitness, bone health, cognition, upper extremity function and quality of life in people with neurological conditions. Two of her stroke exercise programs, Graded Repetitive Arm Supplementary Program (GRASP) and Fitness and Mobility Exercise Program (FAME), are used in over 500 sites in 20 countries. She has been inducted as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences and her work has been recognized by a Jonas Salk Award for lifetime contributions to reducing disability.
