2020 Education Research & Scholarship Grants

July 9, 2020

Sunnybrook Education Advisory Committee is pleased to announce the recipients of our 2020 Research & Scholarship Grants. The call for proposals was highly competitive, and after a rigorous review and selection process, eight of the research interprofessional teams were successful and will be awarded funding for two years to complete their research.
