FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH – Congratulations to Prof. Myles O’Brien, co-author of two articles published in the American Journal of Physiology – Heart and Circulatory Physiology, in collaboration with Canadian and international authors.
Congratulations to our colleague Pamela Tanguay, a PhD student in health sciences at the CFMNB, for winning an award in the “clinical research” category of the patient partner involvement competition. The award is presented by the Axe/Thème and the Centre d’excellence de l’université de Sherbrooke (CEUS) en diabète, obésité et complications cardiovasculaires (DOCC). Pamela’s research project focuses on evaluating the effects of a new cardiac rehabilitation program on physical activity, quality of life, anxiety and depression. Patient-partners are involved in her research to give their perspective on their experience of cardiac rehabilitation. They are involved from research design to dissemination of results. Bravo Pamela!

The IMPACTS Lab research team is delighted to have been part of this first-ever Open Forum.
