Lynne Feehan, PhD, PT, CHT comes from Vancouver, BC, Canada. She has many (not polite to ask how many) years of clinical experience working as a hand therapist in a broad range of clinical setting. Lynne also has extensive research training and has just recently completed a MSFHR post-doctoral research fellowship (Department of Physical Therapy, UBC) examining bone health and physical inactivity in people living with inflammatory arthritis. Lynne is most excited about moving back into a clinical setting, working with the Fraser Health Authority in British Columbia Canada leading their rehabilitation knowledge translation and applied clinical research activities, while continuing with her own research activities. Lynne is also the Immediate Past-President of IFSHT, a Clinical Associate Professor in Physical Therapy, at the University of British Columbia and a junior (albeit not so young) research scientist at the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada (Richmond, BC).
