We couldn’t be prouder of the Offord Centre’s very own Harriet MacMillan, who officially became a Member of the Order of Canada this morning!
Harriet MacMillan is a leader in health research in the areas of family violence and child abuse. She is a professor of psychiatry, behavioural neurosciences and pediatrics at McMaster University, and a principal investigator of PreVAiL, an international network dedicated to studying and combatting all forms of family violence. Her work has resulted in reliable measures of prevalence, supported the use of early interventions, and highlighted the lasting effects of abuse. An active clinician, she founded a unique, hospital-based program for children exposed to violence, and works tirelessly to improve the lives of vulnerable Canadians.
Congratulations, a very well-deserved honour!
