Debra Morgan, professor and chair of Rural Health Delivery at the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture (CCHSA) in the College of Medicine, and Susan Whiting, professor in the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition, have been elected as fellows to CAHS. Fellows elected to CAHS are recognized by their peers nationally and internationally for their contributions to the promotion of health science. They have demonstrated leadership, creativity, distinctive competencies and a commitment to advance academic health science.
“This is an incredible honour to be recognized by my peers for my work,” said Morgan who researches rural and remote health service delivery. “I think that this is a recognition of the importance of research in all facets of health sciences and it is a privilege to join this remarkable network of highly accomplished Canadian health researchers.”
Morgan has devoted her career to improving outcomes for patients with dementia, and established the telehealth-supported Rural and Remote Memory Clinic which serves the needs of people with dementia, their caregivers and their health care providers.
