Dina BrooksDepartment of Physical Therapy

Dr. Brooks is a clinician-scientist whose research crosses boundaries between the study of basic mechanistic issues in rehabilitation in respiratory disease, development of clinical trials to quantify the effect of pulmonary and cardiovascular rehabilitation, and knowledge translation through establishment of clinical practice guidelines. In 2008, she received the Canadian Physiotherapy Association Mentorship Award in recognition of her inspiration to colleagues through acting as a role model for professionalism and volunteerism. That these qualities extend to her teaching of graduate students is evidenced by her receiving the Department of Physical Therapy’s Recognition in Teaching Award for 8 consecutive years and 3 Rising Star Awards for teaching and education in addition to the W.T. Aikins Award bestowed for individual teaching performance.
