We would like to extend our congratulations to CREST.BD network member Dr. Rachelle Hole for her recent appointment as Tier 1 Research Chair Holder for Critical Disability Studies in the Faculty of Health and Social Development Retention Stream at UBC Okanagan.
Rachelle was an invaluable resource to our team when creating modules on deaf communities and disabled populations within the Tapestry Tool Project. Her work has pushed health research forward toward the inclusion of diverse individuals and communities. We cannot wait to see what she will accomplish in her new position!
