Research Council

Every three months, the PHE Canada Research Council selects one of its members to profile as Featured Researcher. Whether it's a university level teacher, academic, or graduate student, the Council wants to highlight people who are advancing research centered on topics and issues in physical and health education.

Do you know a PHE Canada Research Council member whose professional ideals and service strengthen the physical and health education sector? Whose research and writing drives change forward? Who has commitment and dedication to the field?
