Dr. Maureen Ashe is an Associate Professor in the UBC Department of Family Practice, investigator at the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility, physiotherapist, and Canada Research Chair in Community Mobility. Her research is focused on mobility in middle-aged and older adults, including recovery after low trauma fracture and participation in life activities within the community setting. Her research program emphasizes the objective measurement (accelerometry) of physical activity and sedentary behavior patterns across different populations, and testing lifestyle interventions that support behavior change. She also includes the role of the built and social environments to improve or maintain mobility across these populations.
