Star Faculty Receives Prestigious Awards

September has been a month full of celebration for the faculty of the Department of Physical Therapy at UBC. 

  • Dr. Kristin Campbell
    Congratulations to Dr Kristin Campbell for receiving the 2020 Faculty of Medicine Distinguished Achievement Award for Overall Excellence – Mid-Career. This award is to recognize individuals in the Faculty of Medicine who have an outstanding performance during the past year.
    Kristin has another reason to celebrate as she is also part of a team that was awarded a $2.37 million grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Canadian Cancer Society as part of the largest cancer survivorship research initiative in Canada. The project, entitled CanRehab and funded over five years, is focused on research that will lead to sustainable change to cancer supportive care in each community and will focus on exercise programs and educational workshops.

  • DR Alison Greig
    Congratulations to Dr Alison Greig who has been awarded a 2020 UBC Killam Teaching Prize. This honour recognizes outstanding achievements as a teacher, including enthusiasm for teaching and commitment to students. This coveted award is presented annually to faculty nominated by students, colleagues and alumni in recognition of excellence in teaching.

  • Congratulations to Chris Napier, Clinical Assistant Professor, for receiving a New Faculty Research Award for his project on “The development of a wearable gait analysis tool for remote monitoring and assessment of patients”.
