Dr. Kay Teschke has been named one of 14 Most Influential Canadians in Cycling, according to Canadian Cycling magazine.

Dr. Teschke, the editors wrote, “has published influential and sometimes eye-opening, studies on hospitalization rates, helmet laws, bike-share systems, infrastructure and more. What gives her voice credibility and power is the way she bridges the gap between urban planning and public health, showing that encouraging cycling isn’t just good for getting around our cities, but also for building healthier, happier societies.”

Dr. Teschke is a lead investigator of SPPH’s Cycling in Cities research program, which investigates factors that encourage or discourage bicycling, the effect of transportation infrastructure on cycling injuries, and how air pollution affects cyclists.
