Speaker: Stephanie Lurch

Stephanie Lurch is a change maker.

She is a contemporary physiotherapist and educator who resists the traditional and, in doing so, stimulates critical thinking. She is a leader, educator, clinician, advocate, storyteller, and humanitarian who is a powerful example of how physiotherapists can give voice to some of the biggest issues facing our patients and our planet. She is adept at finding solutions that will help people thrive.

Aiming to bridge the gap between academia and practice, Stephanie has worked across multiple settings in the health care and education sectors, leveraging her Master of Education and Bachelor of Physical Therapy degrees.

She currently is the Leader: Anti-Racism, Equity, and Social Accountability in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto, is a paediatric physiotherapist with the York Catholic District School Board, spearheads educational innovations with the Ontario Internationally Educated Bridging Program (OIEPB), designs and implements neuroscience curriculum for the Master of Physical Therapy program at the University of Toronto, governs on the Board of Directors at Flemingdon Health Centre, and is a member of the Diversity Advisory Council at the Temerty Faculty of Medicine. She has served as an examiner for the Physiotherapy National Exam and is a peer reviewer for the provincial College.

Her past achievements include, but are not limited to, co-authoring the Essential Competency Profile for Physiotherapists in Canada (2017), collaboratively leading the Anti-Black Racism Accreditation Task Force, which informed the revision of equity-driven accreditation standards for the Physiotherapy Education Accreditation Canada (PEAC), working with the Cirque du Soleil, and providing thought leadership to both learners and key opinion leaders. She is the mother of pre-teen twin boys who are her "raison d'être" and who give her a reason to stand up for something much larger than herself.
