~The Rehabilitation Colloquium Committee


Every year, Queen’s University and McGill University take it in turns to host the best and the brightest for presentations on recent advances in research on rehabilitation. This year, we are honoured to present the first of many co-run colloquia between McGill and Queen's. Due to Covid-19, this year's colloquium will be an online event, oriented around the theme of resilience in rehabilitation.

The event has now passed. Thank you for attending and we'll see you in 2023!

Meet our Keynote for May 12, Dr. Navaldeep Kaur

Dr. Navaldeep Kaur is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto, Canada. She trained as a physiotherapist and did her PhD in Rehabilitation Science from McGill University. Her doctoral research contributed evidence towards the role of cognitive reserve in protecting cognitive ability in people with HIV. She was mentored by Dr. Nancy Mayo, a seasoned epidemiologist, and acquired expertise in various research methodologies, including conducting meta-analyses and applying modern statistical methods for measuring brain health outcomes. The current focus of her research is on the adaptation of in-person, community-based exercise programs for virtual delivery for people with balance and mobility limitations.
