Radhika Patel, PT, MS, MBA

I am an enthusiastic Physical Therapist with a passion for health and wellness promotion. I was introduced to clinical research during my Master's in Rehabilitation Sciences (UIC, Chicago) program, and I fell in love with evidence-based rehabilitation. I recently moved to Canada after working for 3 years in outpatient PT (Novacare Rehabilitation, Chicago). Currently, I work as a Clinical Researcher for the University Health Network (Canada). When I am not working, I am an avid traveler, gastronome, and a recent fan of board games.
