Dr. Wenonah Campbell
Wenonah Campbell, PhD, John and Margaret Lillie Chair in Childhood Disability Research, is an Assistant Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science’s Speech-Language Pathology Program and a Scientist at CanChild. Dr. Campbell and her research team use varied research methodologies to study how best to deliver health support services in schools that promote the inclusion, participation, and engagement of all children. Her team’s research involves engaging stakeholders and building partnerships across the education and health sectors. In addition to her research within the K-12 education system, Dr. Campbell also leads a program of research to enhance accessibility within post-secondary health professional graduate programs. To help close the gap between evidence and practice, knowledge translation is an integral part of Dr. Campbell’s program of research.
