A message from Dr. Patrick McGrath, Vice President, Research:
Friends and Colleagues,
The IWK Health Centre is the leading children’s and women’s health centre in Maritime Canada. Our affiliation with Dalhousie University as an academic health sciences centre greatly enhances our ability to nurture a truly interdisciplinary environment that results in research excellence. Our investment in research has led to many changes in health care for women and children - not only through new discoveries, but also by enabling us to recruit outstanding new leaders. We’ve been richly rewarded for our investment in three major ways:
The next 5 to 10 years will offer even more exciting opportunities for a new generation of leaders. Women and children in the Maritimes can look forward to improved health, through innovative solutions to many pressing health care issues. Why? Because research fosters a healthier population and a more efficient health care system.Share
