2021 Reach award recipients

MSFHR’s Reach Program provides funding for teams of researchers and research users to support the dissemination and effective uptake of research evidence.

Introduced in 2017, Reach awards provide funding of up to $15,000 for teams of health researchers and research users as they plan and implement research dissemination activities to enable the transfer, exchange and/or uptake of research evidence in audiences who can directly use the information.
