Dr. Julie Reid is a physiotherapist who recently completed her PhD in Rehabilitation Science. Julie has practiced physiotherapy for 12-years in the neurotrauma intensive care unit (ICU) at Hamilton General Hospital. Her PhD research focused on early mobilization of critically ill patients in ICU. As a
rehabilitation clinician and scientist, Julie has a passion for working with vulnerable populations, including older adults with frailty. Both her clinical work with elderly patients and their families, and her PhD studies fuelled her interest in frailty research. Julie is keen to develop specific evidence to guide rehabilitation and preventative strategies for older adults.
