Ada Tang
Assistant Professor, Rehabilitation Science

Ada Tang is a physical therapist, Assistant Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster, and Clinician-Scientist with the Ontario Heart and Stroke Foundation. She worked clinically in adult stroke and acquired brain injury rehabilitation at Toronto Rehab for many years, completed her MSc in Rehabilitation Science and PhD in Medical Science at the University of Toronto, and postdoctoral training at the University of British Columbia.

Dr Tang and the MacStroke Canada research team are focused on the impact of exercise on cardiovascular health in people with stroke and other neurological conditions. Limited mobility following stroke can contribute to physical inactivity and sedentary behaviours, leading to higher risk for developing cardiovascular disease. Exercise and physical activity can mediate many cardiovascular risk factors, and may be an effective strategy for primary and secondary prevention.
