Weiwei Li

Weiwei joined the DPQoL laboratory in Fall 2022 and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Kinesiology. She received her bachelor’s degree in Health Science from Truman State University and her master’s degree in Occupational Science and Therapy from Grand Valley State University. Her research aims to analyze physical engagement as a behavioral modification for stroke recovery and its long-term effect on the quality of life for stroke survivors, which includes social participation, community engagement, and the ability to functional movement. Her goal is to conduct high-quality research for people with disabilities and advance scientific-based knowledge in clinical practice for underserved communities. Ultimately, eliminating health inequities, increasing community engagement, and creating equitable outcomes in health education lead to self-advocating communities.
