As a faculty member in Obstetrics and Gynaecology with a joint appointment in Psychiatry and Adjunct appointment in Psychology since 2005, Dr. Brotto more recently has become the Executive Director of the Women’s Health Research Institute where she leads collaborative women’s health research at BC Women’s, PHSA, UBC and other partner universities. Together, these teams of researchers are investigating and advancing women-centred healthcare in British Columbia and beyond.
“When women are healthy, all of society benefits. When we study societies where women are not healthy, it is immediately evident that many different aspects of those societies suffer,” says Dr. Brotto.
“Without research, excellent healthcare is simply not possible.” We are so grateful for the devotion, commitment, and innovation of all the researchers working behind the scenes to transform healthcare for women and their families.
