Eligibility More Canadian research is needed to address the health and well-being issues over the life-course of individuals and families of those who serve and have served, as related to occupational exposures, experiences and environment. These may include health consequences - physical, mental and social - that are unique in their nature, magnitude, long-term effects, delayed presentation, and trans-generational implications. Preference is given to students studying at one of CIMVHR’s 43 partner Universities; to Canadian students; and/or to reservists, where applicable.
