Dr. Debra Morgan presented with Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation 2015 Achievement Award




The Rural Dementia Action Research website was initially created to support the research initiatives of members of a New Emerging Team grant (2003-2009) funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Funding through an Applied Chair in Health Services and Policy Research (2009-2015) from CIHR and the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation allowed the research team at the University of Saskatchewan to build on the momentum gained during the previous years. New funding from the Canadian Consortium in Neurodegeneration in Aging [CCNA] (2014-2019) and SHRF supports RaDAR team member projects and projects with our co-CCNA team members in other regions in Canada. A growing area of need in the current health care system, rural dementia care is demanding the attention of health care providers, researchers, and policy makers.
