Physical Activity for Children with Disabilities

Colleague and researcher Dr. Amy McPherson from the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital in Toronto leads a program of research related to children with disabilities, with a specific focus of obesity and physical activity. She was quoted recently in an article published in Parents Canada, a magazine with wide reach across the country, regarding physical activity suggestions for children with physical disabilities. Among other things, this highlights the value for us (clinicians and researchers) in translating and disseminating research evidence for the public, and parents/families in particular.

Congrats, Amy!
