Ontario Women’s Health Scholars 2021

Novel women’s health research is taking place across Ontario’s universities, exploring pressing topics such as pregnancy, mental health, sexual desire and eating disorders. Six leading researchers from Ontario universities are being recognized for their research in these areas with a 2021 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.
