NEW Diane Cook 

Diane Cook
Research Coordinator


I graduated from the University of Alberta in 1999 with a Bachelor of Physical Education degree. My concentration was Athletic Therapy and Exercise Physiology.

I am certified with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology as a certified exercise physiologist. My work background has involved coaching power skating, working in the field of athletic therapy with Grant MacEwan and Concordia Colleges, and in the field of exercise rehabilitation with various physiotherapy clinics and Millard Health.

I have had breast cancer and am interested in the effects of exercise on cancer. Outside of work I spend time with family and friends, garden, travel and photography.

I am the research coordinator in Edmonton for the CIHR Team in Physical Activity and Breast Cancer Survivorship: The Alberta Moving Beyond Breast Cancer (AMBER) Cohort Study.

 NEW Stephanie Voaklander

Stephanie Voaklander

Research Coordinator


In 2010 I graduated from the U of A with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Working as a high school athletic therapist I realized a passion for teaching and went back to school to complete my Bachelor of Education. That is when I began working part time with the Behavioural Medicine Lab for the BETA Trial. Upon completion of my B.Ed in 2013 I began working for a tree clearing company and was up in Fort McMurray when I discovered that a new full time position had opened up with Lab. I have been working as a Research Coordinator on the AMBER Study since then. I am certified through the American College of Sports Medicine as a Certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist. In my spare time, I like to stay active by running and doing yoga. I also enjoy going to live music and is a huge Oilers and Eskimo’s fan, attending as many games live as I can fit into a season!

 In 2013 I Graduated from UBCO (Kelowna) with a Bachelor of Human Kinetics in the Clinical Exercise Physiology stream. During my degree I worked on a COPD exercise trial, at the pulmonary rehabilitation program at the Kelowna General Hospital and for the COACH cardiac rehabilitation program. Upon moving to Edmonton I became a Certified Exercise Physiologist though the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. I am also a registered Kinesiologist with the Alberta Kinesiology Association and I have my EIMC Level 2 (Exercise is Medicine) certification. I am very interested in the effects of exercise on cancer, as well as helping those with cancer and other chronic diseases to better their health and wellbeing through exercise. In my free time I like to stay active by going to the gym, hiking, and when time permits taking trips to the mountains to snowboard.
