Medical Practitioners given Grant for Research
Meet Dr. Margaret McGregor while she does a routine health check with one of her patients. McGregor is one of the many health practitioners who has benefitted from the Community Based Clinician Investigator Program (CBCI) partly funded by the Vancouver Foundation.
This program gives practitioners the chance to do community-based medical research while continuing their medical practice. Everyone requires health support at some point and research can positively affect health care for all of us in B.C. Her research is on health policy and how it affects people in nursing homes throughout the province.
Clients are grateful for the program since it allows their doctors to continue working at the medical clinic where they can support their health needs and physicians feel the program recognizes the value of their research.
