Video showcases health research environment

A new video highlighting the Windsor-Essex health research environment carries the message that research changes lives.

The WE-Spark Health Institute debuted the video to an audience of more than 130 people during its fundraising reception “Cheers to Hope,” April 27 at the Essex Golf and Country Club.

It features local experts and students across the institute’s four partner institutions — the University of Windsor, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, St. Clair College, and Windsor Regional Hospital — ­and thanks supporters for making a difference.

“Our research projects have already attracted national and international funding to our region and are bringing cutting-edge infrastructure,” said executive director Lisa Porter, a professor of biomedical sciences.

“World-class research helps to attract and retain the best and brightest, fuels our local economy, and improves health outcomes for everyone. We’re grateful to all our partners, clinicians, researchers, and supporters for making this all possible.”
