ACHIEVE: Postdoctoral training to accelerate change

Under Dr. Pat O’Campo’s leadership, CRICH launched the 24-month ACHIEVE (Action for Health Equity Interventions) Training Program. Funded by a multi-year, CIHR Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research (STIHR) grant, ACHIEVE trained 38 postdoctoral fellows to generate and apply evidence to address and close health inequities. Alumni went on to be Canada Research Chairs, hospital and university chairs, researchers, professors and leaders at institutions across North America including MAP and Unity Health Toronto.
