Dr Leanne Hassett
2005 Menzies Scholar in the Allied Health Sciences
Leanne Hassett holds the degree of Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) and Master of Health Science (Neurological Physiotherapy) from the University of Sydney.
Leanne's PhD project "Fitness training after traumatic brain injury" was designed to determine the effectiveness of fitness training for people with TBI and validate a field test for cardiorespiratory fitness. Cardiorespiratory fitness is commonly reduced in people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and restricts participation in work and leisure activities.
