P2 mini-retreat - June 12, 2019
The P2 -Person to Population research team hosted a mini-retreat June 12, 2019, that was a wonderful success, and was the 6th retreat of the program. P2 researchers, with a variety of backgrounds and areas of expertise (e.g. health services research, population health, statistics, health economics, clinical experts, data sciences, patient engagement, and clinical trials), enthusiastically provided feedback to a series of grant proposals. The researchers fielded questions and received excellent ideas that will greatly benefit their project’s development. This retreat highlighted three phenomenal research teams who shared their project progress and grant proposals. Presentations included: Dr. Steve Wilton on The RAPID SPAF Randomized Clinical Trial, Ms. Chelsea Doktorchik on the Development of a Social Determinant of Health Surveillance Systems, and Dr. Ling Yang and Dr. Shaminder Singh presented on Walk to Win, a program for community engagement for chronic disease prevention. Each team aims to submit a grant application for the next round of CIHR or PHAC calls for proposals. P2 will convene again in the fall of 2019 to further refine grant proposals and work together to advance research and healthcare for people and populations.
