RMC Prof Participates in Historic U of A Announcement / Une Prof du RMC participe à un announce historique de l’Université de l’Alberta

Stéphanie Bélanger, PhD, professeure au Département d’études françaises du Collège militaire royal du Canada et Directrice scientifique associée de l’Institut de recherche sur la santé des militaires et des vétérans (IRSMV), participait, ce lundi 13 février 2012, à l’ouverture d’une Chaire de recherche en Réhabilitation physique et mentale pour les militaires et les vétérans à l’Université d’Alberta (Edmonton), la première chaire de recherche canadienne dans ce domaine. Cette chaire de recherche offre une excellente opportunité de collaboration entre le titulaire de la chaire, professeur Ibolja Cernak, et l’Institut de recherche sur la santé des militaires et des vétérans, un institut pancanadien unissant 21 universités (jusqu’à ce jour) et plus de 150 chercheurs qui se penchent sur les problèmes de santé des militaires, des vétérans et de leurs familles (www.cimvhr.ca). De plus, la semaine dernière, l’Université Queen’s, qui a co-fondé l’IRSMV avec le CMRC, annonçait la chaire de recherche Bell sur la santé mentale et l’anti-stigma, dont la récipiendaire, le professeur Heather Stuart, est un des chercheurs membres de l’IRSMV ; voilà qui constitue une autre excellente opportunité de collaboration pour l’avancement de la recherche sur la santé des membres des FC, des vétérans et de leurs familles.

Dr Stéphanie Bélanger, from the French Department at the Royal Military College of Canada and the Associate Scientific Director of the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR), participated last Monday 13 February in the University of Alberta’s announcement of the first Canadian Chair for Military and Veterans’ Clinical Rehabilitation. This Chair offers an excellent opportunity for collaboration between the appointee of the chair, Dr Ibolja Cernak, and the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR), a pan-Canadian institute bringing together 21 universities (and counting) and more than 150 researchers who are focussing on health issues of military members, veterans, and their families. (www.cimvhr.ca). Also, last week, Queen’s university, who co-founded CIMVHR with RMCC, announced the Bell Mental Health and Anti-Stigma Research Chair, appointed to Dr. Heather Stuart, one of CIMVHR’s Researchers; this is yet another excellent opportunity of collaboration for the advancement of research for the well-being of CF members, veterans and their families.

Canadian Army mentors proud of healthier, self-reliant Afghan training institution

“…My mantra since arriving has been that we give ANA staff nothing that they are supposed to get from their own supply system. That is not our job and it only fuels dependence on the coalition. Instead, we have taught the ANA to use their own sustainment systems and to develop their own solutions to problems.”
