Headshot of Dr. Annemarie Lee

Dr. Annemarie Lee will be presenting “Pulmonary rehabilitation for conditions other than COPD: adaptations and innovations” at Rehab Rounds on Thursday April 7, 2016 from 12:10 to 1:00 pm.  This event will take place in room 140 of the Rehabilitation Sciences Building at 500 University Avenue.

Dr. Lee is a postdoctoral fellow from Australia, and was previously a senior lecturer in physiotherapy at The University of Melbourne and a clinician in pulmonary rehabilitation.  Her research explores the role of pulmonary rehabilitation in chronic respiratory diseases, including bronchiectasis and pulmonary hypertension, and the influence of co-morbidities on respiratory conditions.  Dr. Lee is currently focusing on the prevalence of musculoskeletal pain in COPD and the resulting clinical implications.  She is presently undertaking measurements of posture in this population
to further examine the contribution of postural changes as an origin of pain.

A recording of this presentation is available.
