Dr. Lougheed Simpson is passionate about exercise as a form of medicine, and incorporates this into her daily practice with patients from all age groups and walks of life. With implications for improved physical fitness, mental health and well being, and reduction and improvement in chronic disease conditions through exercise, her goal is to assist her patients to reach their physical activity goals, whether that involves preparing for elite competition at the highest international level, returning to daily function at home and work, or to recreational activity.
She has provided care for a variety of sports teams, including the Western University Mustangs rugby, wrestling, cross-country running, and womens ice hockey teams, and at events including the London 2018 Ontario Summer Games, the 2018 FIBA U-18 Basketball Championships, and the London Forest City Road Races.
A self-described 'sports junkie', Dr. Lougheed Simpson strives to stay as involved and informed as possible in numerous sports. She previously competed as a University of Toronto Varsity Blue on the Mountain Bike Team, and continues to race currently. She is an avid endurance athlete, and enjoys exploring the many outdoor trail systems in and around Toronto.
