Time Magazine featured UBC research on the benefits of strength training for older women.

The study from UBC’s department of physical therapy found resistance training was linked with improved cognitive functioning in older women compared with training focussed on balance or toning.

Study author Teresa Liu-Ambrose, director of UBC’s aging, mobility, and cognitive neuroscience laboratory, was quoted in a Psychology Today article on the same topic.
