Dr. Bosch is a
neurorehabilitation and pediatric physical therapist with over thirty years of
experience in the profession. Her
research interests are focused on the effectiveness of intensive neurorehabilitation,
determining optimal aerobic training intensity and implementing appropriate
aerobic training interventions for people with impaired walking from a stroke.
Dr. Bosch is interested in the ability of these interventions to reduce
comorbidities, improve function, and enhance quality of life for individuals
living with the effects of stroke.
