Seven research projects have been awarded a total of $122,000 under the 2015 Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research (NLCAHR) Awards Program. NLCAHR funds research that aligns with the Centre’s mandate: to meet the challenges of population health and health services in Newfoundland and Labrador; to address health promotion and wellness; and to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of the provincial health system. Thirty applicants submitted proposals to this year’s program. They included Master’s students, Doctoral candidates, and faculty researchers from a range of disciplines who are either developing or proposing applied health research projects. We extend our sincere thanks to all who applied and to the peer reviewers who assessed their applications.
