Ontario Women’s Health Scholars 2022

Ground-breaking women’s health research is taking place across Ontario’s universities, exploring critical topics, such as the factors that contribute to young-onset breast cancer survival, women’s recruitment and retention as first responders, and the misdiagnosis of brain injury in survivors of intimate partner violence.

With a goal to help improve the health and well-being of women across the province, eight leading researchers from Ontario universities are being recognized with a 2022 Women’s Health Scholars Award. They will receive scholarships of up to $50,000 to continue their important research. The annual awards are funded by the Ontario government and administered by the Council of Ontario Universities.

This research reflects Ontario universities’ commitment to providing an enriching and meaningful academic experience – one that fosters skills and provides a collaborative environment to enable the innovative research that can lead to improved services for women across the province.
