Research and Teaching

Dr. Jasmin Ma’s work aims to combine practice, research, and end-user engagement to support people with diverse physical abilities to be physically active. She teaches and provides training in the areas of exercise testing, prescription, and physical activity program design and delivery. Her educational leadership activities involve the development and knowledge translation of inclusive physical activity counselling and prescription approaches and the implementation of end-user engaged experiential learning opportunities in community-based exercise settings. Jasmin’s research focuses on supporting strength training behaviour change and developing methods for tailored physical activity interventions among people with chronic disease and disability.
