Research by Dr. Susan Harris highlighted by CIHR

Professor Emeritus, Susan Harris, along with other Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy faculty members as well as clinicians and people with osteoporosis partnered to elucidate the role of exercise in the rehabilitation process for osteoporotic patients who have suffered a fracture.  The team published two articles in 2011 and in 2012 one of these articles was cited in the New England Journal of Medicine.
