"Being a recipient of the CBPHC New Investigator Awards is an honor. More importantly, it has considerably contributed to the development of my research program. The opportunity to network with other recipients of the CBPHC SPOR funding initiative and the credibility that the award affords have been very beneficial. Since being granted the award, I have secured over $1 million as Nominated Principal Investigator and I am increasingly confident that the work I am doing with a team of outstanding researchers can help address gaps in primary health care and have a positive impact on lives in Ontario."
