CRHESI Launches New Affiliate Role

CRHESI is excited to announce the launch of the CRHESI Affiliate role! This role is for people who want to more actively support CRHESI’s mission through academic and/or community research and knowledge mobilization activities. People with active involvement in topics aligned with CRHESI’s theme areas, and conducted following CRHESI principles may self-nominate or be nominated. There are three Affiliate categories: Community, Academic and Trainee. 

CRHESI’s goal is to develop an active network of affiliates with expertise and commitment to facilitate research and KMb connections and knowledge sharing to advance health equity and social inclusion activities in London and area. 

We are proud to name Dr. Helene Berman, Distinguished University Professor Emerita in the Faculty of Health Sciences' Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing, Western University as the first CRHESI Affiliate in the academic category. 

Helene was a leading force in the establishment of CRHESI and is the founding Academic Director. We are grateful for Helene’s ongoing contributions and expertise in community-based research focused on the subtle and explicit forms of violence experienced by women and children, social and structural inequalities, and health.
