Dr. Dina Brooks appointed as NSA Chair in Respiratory Rehab Research

Dr. Dina Brooks, a leader in the study of pulmonary and cardiovascular rehabilitation, has been appointed as the National Sanitarium Association Chair in Respiratory Rehabilitation Research.

Dr. Brooks will take over from Dr. Roger Goldstein, who held the position since it was created in 2002 with an historic $1 million gift to West Park from the National Sanitarium Association (NSA), matched by the hospital’s Foundation. It was Canada’s first research chair in respiratory rehabilitation, and the first research chair at West Park. 

Building on her extensive body of research and proven track record of success, Dr. Brooks will, in her capacity as NSA Chair, continue to play a vital role in championing and advancing respiratory rehabilitation research at West Park and with national and national research networks – providing opportunities for teaching and supervision of doctoral stream students, mentorship of postdoctoral fellows and more junior investigators.

Congratulations to Dina on this important appointment!
