Vancouver, BC – Congratulations to Arthritis Research Canada’s Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Linda Li – who was announced as a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences.

Dr.Li’s research and academic activities focus is in two areas: models of care in the management of arthritis, and the development and evaluation of knowledge translation strategies. Her research centers on assessing health service delivery models, and understanding and facilitating the use of evidence by health professionals and patients.

Her areas of methodological expertise include clinical epidemiology, knowledge translation, clinical trials, and survey design. Dr. Li currently holds a Canada Research Chair in Patient-oriented Knowledge Translation.

Dr. Li has won number awards as an epidemiologist and a physiotherapist, and is continuously working on the process of knowledge translation by actively engaging patients and members of the public in her studies.
