SPHERU receives $750,000 grant for study

January 12, 2011

SPHERU has been granted $750,000 from the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation to continue to help reduce health disparities in Saskatchewan's most vulnerable populations over the next three years.

Working across both the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, SPHERU's research will inform an increased understanding of the existing support networks and community level interventions within a community, identify the origins of present day health inequities through an historical lens, and explore the conditions that create successful programs, policies, and systems known to improve the health of children and seniors.

The understanding gained through this research will provide academics, policy-makers, and community partners with increased insight into the factors that create and help sustain healthy individuals and communities across Saskatchewan.

See the University of Regina news page to find out more about the study.
