Dr. Pam Roach named Canada Research Chair

Dr. Pam Roach, assistant professor in the Departments of Family Medicine and Community Health Sciences, has been awarded a Tier 2 CIHR Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Health Systems Safety.

In the relatively short time since she has joined our department, the DFM has benefited immensely from Dr. Roach’s presence and her contributions in the areas of Indigenous Health research, and her knowledge and guidance in creating health and medical education programs that improve outcomes for Indigenous patients. 

Canada Research Chairs are a prestigious accomplishment, recognizing the achievements and the pursuit of research excellence of their holders. Dr. Roach could not be more deserving of this honour and we are so excited to see the ways in which her research continues to impact and inspire change within our department and beyond!
