ACHRI unites a diverse group of scientists and clinicians, all working towards a common goal: to help improve the health and wellness of children, young people and their families.
Child Health and Wellness research activities range from fundamental science to clinical, health services and population health research. ACHRI members are affiliated with 10 Faculties and over 25 Departments and Programs in the University of Calgary. Some of our members also hold clinical appointments with Alberta Health Services, working closely with patients, taking scientific discoveries from the laboratory into clinical practice, the community and beyond. With over 350 researchers, clinicians and clinician scientists, our Institute is making discoveries in the physical, cognitive, and social domains of child health research.
