Courtney EllisI received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo in April 2018. I studied Kinesiology in the co-operative education program and specialized in neurobehavioural assessment.

Thesis title: The Effects of Community-Based Training on Cognition, Physical Function, Mood, and Well-being: A Pragmatic Study

Research summary: Ageing can impact everyone both physically and mentally. The effects of different exercise programs and interventions on physical and mental health have been studied greatly, however most have been explored in research settings only. So, I teamed up with the A. R. Kaufman YMCA to implement and evaluate two community-based programs using assessments that measure cognitive function, physical function, self-efficacy, and overall well-being in adults and older adults with or at risk for chronic health condition common with ageing.
