Collaboratory for Research and Innovation
Dr. Michelle Nelson is a Scientist in the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute at Sinai Health System and an Assistant Professor in the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. Michelle leads international research teams focused on rehabilitation and community reintegration for people with complex care needs and is particularly interested in the role and contributions of volunteers and the third sector in integrated care. In 2020, Dr. Nelson was appointed the inaugural Chief Knowledge Officer for March of Dimes Canada (MODC) a national service organization that provides programs for people living with stroke. Having leadership roles in both research and practice environments creates opportunities for practice informed research, and leverages these insights to advance the design and implementation of evidence informed community based services.
