Dr. Tasmia Hai, Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology, is a recipient of 2024 IMPaCT Salary Award.

The funding for this project is provided by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research's 'Increasing Capacity for Maternal and Paediatric Clinical Trials' (IMPaCT), a Clinical Trials Training Platform. It will support training on how to design, conduct and communicate about clinical trials in children.

Dr. Hai's project, HOPE (Helping Our Parents and children Excel) Trial: Family Intervention for Immigrants with Preschool Children, will specifically support immigrant parents and children by offering a family-focused and culturally-based intervention that will empower parents and ultimately improve the well-being and life trajectories of vulnerable children.

As an immigrant person of colour, Dr. Hai hopes to bring a voice to immigrant families and children, many of whom are experiencing complex societal pressures. Through the IMPaCT program's curriculum, mentorship and networking opportunities, Dr, Hai will be better equipped to lead impactful research projects that improve healthcare outcomes for these underserved populations.
