RIHM Innovation and Leadership Fund

Jan 12, 2018

The Rehabilitation Sciences Institute (RSI) in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto is profoundly grateful for the generosity of RTW Integrated Health Management and Rehabilitation Research, Education and Evaluation Services for establishing The RTW Integrated Health Management Innovation and Leadership Fund in Rehabilitation Science for Indigenous Health in RSI.

RTW Integrated Health Management (RIHM) uses a social enterprise B Corp certification pending model to provide services in the public and private spheres with a focus on enhancing public health care and rehabilitation through innovation, evolving evidence-based care, a focus on the social determinants of health, social/environmental justice advocacy and related professional education training and initiatives. RIHMs evolving evidence-based care model and related interventions are supported by research initiatives by Rehabilitation Research, Education and Evaluation Services (RREES) as well a partnership with the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto among others. With an ongoing commitment to the calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Final Report, RIHM and RREES have also recently signed The Philanthropic Community’s Declaration of Action. The Declaration is a call to action inviting others to join in moving forward in an atmosphere of understanding, dignity and respect towards the shared goal of reconciliation. 

In this spirit, The RTW Integrated Health Management Innovation and Leadership Fund in Rehabilitation Science for Indigenous Health is available to graduate students who are enrolled in the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute for the purpose of conducting Indigenous health-related rehabilitation science research with clinical relevance. Preference will be given to Indigenous students. For more information on eligibility, please refer to the Upcoming Award Deadlines tab on the RSI website or contact Loida Ares at rsi.admin@utoronto.ca.

The Rehabilitation Sciences Institute thanks RIHM and RREES for their thoughtful generosity and unprecedented support of rehabilitation science research, innovation and leadership.
