Think Tank to consider health research projects

The WE-Spark Health Institute is hosting its first virtual Think Tank via Zoom from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9.

 “Our Think Tanks provide unique opportunities for researchers, stakeholders, and students to meet and discuss potential research collaborations,” said executive director Lisa Porter. “We’re looking forward to our first virtual Think Tank that will bring people together for an exciting interdisciplinary event.”

The event will begin with an overview of three projects, followed by breakout sessions:

  • Kitty Huang and Laura D'Alimonte, Windsor Regional Hospital: Rehab for Radiation Oncology Patients
  • Hali Sitarz, St. Clair College: Poverty: What can we do to empathize, understand and assist?
  • Meaghan Wunder, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry - Windsor Campus: The temporal dynamics of physical activity on quality of life and survival in high-grade glioma

The outcomes will focus on moving each project forward and building collaborations across Windsor-Essex.
