James Manson, Director of Exercise Physiology, joined the Cleveland Clinic Canada team in 2009. He was drawn to Exercise Physiology by a strong desire to help improve one's health through exercise and physical activity. During his career, he has worked with various populations, including Cystic Fibrosis patients, athletes and children.
Mr. Manson earned a Bachelors of Arts degree in Kinesiology and Health Science and a Masters of Science in Exercise Physiology from York University. He is currently a PhD candidate in the Exercise Physiology program at York University.
To complement his education, Mr. Manson earned his specialty designation as a Certified Exercise Physiologist from the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiologists.
In addition to his work at our clinic, he is involved in clinical research to advance the practice of Exercise Physiology. He is currently involved in a three year research project to assess the effectiveness of Tai Chi on improving physical and psychological health in low income elderly people. In addition, he is publishing several studies on chronic disease through the Hospital for Sick Children with that particular chronic disease population.
In his free time, Mr. Manson enjoys visiting his sister on her dairy farm and spending time with his family.
