Introducing the COVID-19 Rehab Research Network
The University of Toronto has established a research network to advance rehabilitation models of care that will optimize health and well-being among people recovering from or affected by COVID-19.
The Rehabilitation Science Research Network for COVID will support research and training focused on COVID-19 rehabilitation, recovery, caregiver wellbeing and communities hit hardest by the pandemic, such as racial minorities and those with low-income households.
RSI's very own, Drs. Jill Cameron and Kelly O'Brien have been named co-director's of the network.
The network has received $1 million in seed funding from James and Louise Temerty and the Temerty Foundation’s $250-million gift to the Faculty.
According to Dr. O'Brien, the new network will facilitate further advances in current research, capacity building and training, and knowledge translation.
Thank you to the leadership in Temerty Medicine for recognizing the role that rehabilitation can play in recovery from COVID-19!
