Two MAP scientists were appointed Canada Research Chairs earlier today, in an announcement made by Science and Sport Minister Kirsty Duncan at the University of Victoria. Dr. Patricia O’Campo was named Canada Research Chair in Population Health Intervention Research. Dr. Nav Persaud was named Canada Research Chair in Health Justice.
“Receiving this chair means we can develop new partnerships with organizations working on tough urban health challenges that impact health, and create new opportunities for training in this relatively new area of research,” said Dr. O’Campo. “It’s a real honour to be recognized for your body of research, but also to be recognized for your proposed program of research for the next seven years.”
