    Author

    Danielle R. Bouchard, PhD, CSEP-CEP, is an associate professor of kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick, and she is a codirector at the Cardiometabolic Exercise and Lifestyle Laboratory. She started her academic career at the Université de Moncton by studying physical education with a minor in biology. She went on to earn a master’s degree in exercise sciences from the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. She was introduced to the field of physical activity for older adults when she completed her doctorate at the Université de Sherbrooke. Since then, she has been involved at different levels in encouraging older adults to become or stay active. The main focus of her research relates to clinical exercise physiology to test novel approaches to encourage inactive individuals—especially those with chronic conditions—to improve their physical capacities.

    Bouchard is on the editorial board of the Journal of Aging and Physical Activity and has written numerous articles on the topic in key journals in addition to a contribution in the Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging.
