Ontario Women’s Health Scholars 2020

University researchers working to improve women’s health across Ontario

Breast cancer survivors and women who have been victims of gender-based violence are among those whose lives could be transformed by novel research being carried out by this year’s recipients of the Ontario Women’s Health Scholars Award.

Five distinguished Ontario university scholars have received this year’s Women’s Health Scholars Award, earning scholarships of up to $50,000 to continue their important research with a goal to improve the health and well-being of women across Ontario. The annual awards are funded by the Ontario government and administered by the Council of Ontario Universities.

This outstanding work reflects Ontario universities’ commitment to providing a quality 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.
