2019 CIMVHR fellows
The CIMVHR Fellows program started in 2016 as a way to recognize leaders who demonstrate exceptional research advancements within the field of military, Veteran and family health research and well-being.
Fellows are selected based on how they demonstrate outstanding service to the field of military, Veteran and family health and well-being; exceptional research advancements within the field of military, Veteran and family health and well-being; continuous engagement with CIMVHR events, such as, but not exclusive to, CIMVHR’s Annual Forum and regional or thematic workshops.
As a Fellow, these individuals support CIMVHR through numerous commitments to:
- promote CIMVHR’s mission;
- inspire participation and leadership in CIMVHR scientific activities;
- outreach and engagement with researchers and policy makers to extend CIMVHR presence in their region; and
- encourage building and growth in research networks that will benefit Veterans and military personnel and their families through mentoring new researchers and attracting new talent to the fields.
CIMVHR was thrilled to announce four new Fellows at Forum 2019.
