Faculty Profile of the Month - March 2016

Dr. Bill Montelpare, the Margaret and Wallace McCain Chair in Human Development and Health, has been working to develop a Patient Oriented Research Clinic on the UPEI campus. The first clinic opened last month to deliver services to people with respiratory issues, primarily those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The development of a cardiac rehabilitation clinic is in the works as well as a Concussion Screening and Treatment Pilot Project with the Workers Compensation Board of PEI. These primary care services are much needed on PEI and will not only benefit the people who attend the clinics but also our health professional students (nursing, dietetics and kinesiology) to gain valuable hands on experience.

Congratulations to Bill for all of his hard work on getting this clinic up and running.
