“Care gaps in osteoporosis diagnosis and fracture prevention continue and we need research to determine to best ways to reduce these care gaps. I have diligently taken on the goal of building capacity in the area of health services research in rehabilitation and knowledge translation to improve quality of care for fracture patients. My vision for the future is to train the best students to become interested in the field of rehabilitation health services and knowledge translation research.”
