Brock chosen to house ON hub of Canada-wide behavioural research


Brock University has been selected to house the Ontario hub of the Canadian Behavioural Interventions and Trials Network Training Platform. This national initiative–headquartered at Concordia University–trains students and researchers on how to evaluate behaviour-change programs in healthcare. The focus of the Brock-based Ontario hub will be to connect students with stakeholders in the healthcare sector. It will also provide approximately scholarships to fund student internship opportunities. “We’re really excited to build capacity, provide additional networking opportunities for students with people who work in the field of behavioural medicine, and build those cross-Canada and cross-Ontario connections,” said ON hub chair and Brock Assistant Professor Sean Locke.
