The HWS campaign is a platform for collaboration. That’s why this blog series is co-authored by community and health leaders from across the province to share their insights on why health research matters for Ontarians and our economy. Minister of Research and Innovation, Reza Moridi, spoke at our June 1st Healthier, Wealthier, Smarter conference and campaign launch at MaRS Discovery District (see summary here). In his speech, Minister Moridi spoke of the value that research hospitals bring to Ontario’s innovation engine, saying “research hospitals will foster the economy of tomorrow, while improving our quality of life.” It is our honour to have the Minister offer his full insights on our Health and Community Leaders Talk blog. CAHO and its members thank you for your support, and look forward to cultivating partnerships to continue building a healthier, wealthier, smarter province.
