Bio sketch for Asha Bajaj, PT/DPT - Physical therapist
I have 30+years' experience in a variety of settings including the management and operation of an outpatient private practice in Walnut Creek, CA from 1985-2004. I did serve in Bhutan, India, Vietnam and Malawi Africa with Health Volunteers Overseas to train and develop their Physical therapy program. From 2006-2013 I was involved with Acute care in a hospital setting and an outpatient clinic as a locum therapist. I do have a special interest in Women’s health and my doctoral project was in the area of Bone health and Osteoporosis. Recently I was involved with a monthly Health education series at the Afghan Elderly association in Fremont and a health series with the Town of Danville.
I have been involved actively since 1993-2004 as a clinical associate professor with the UCSF physical therapy program and served on the admissions committee. Her professional activities have included serving on the executive board of the Golden Gate chapter in the capacity of PAC and Publicity Chair and as a delegate to represent the Physical therapists in her area.
Due to my involvement with AAPIO, the physician group, I have done many speaking engagements at their monthly CME meetings and serves on their Ancillary Board.
I am actively involved in the community with women’s education and legal advocacy and served as the president of the local branch in Danville for the AAUW (American Association of University Women). My current interests include Storytelling at the Asian Art Museum, playing tennis and internet Scrabble, reading and hiking and spending time with my grandkids. Professional interests include Abstract Reviewer and Con ED reviewer for CPTA and writing a monthly column for her neighborhood magazine,
It's time to give back and focus on a healthy lifestyle so that the best years are always ahead of us rather than behind us.

About Me[edit | edit source]
I enjoy keeping a balance between mind/body/soul activities through storytelling at the Asian art museum for school kids, dancing and music and long walks and meditation and mindfulness to manage the mind. Physical therapy has given me a wellness perspective rather than follow the traditional disease model-so thankful to have found a career of service within the scientific method.[edit | edit source]
