Research is key to improving education, practice and patient
outcomes. Our work impacts practice, health outcomes, quality of care and
health policy to improve the health of our communities. We provide support, mentorship
and leadership to students and faculty through opportunities to collaborate on
projects and through interprofessional work. Laboratory and statistical support is
