The SMART Network stands with Black Lives Matter and with all oppressed minorities around the world and
at home in Canada. We have and will continue to work hard to abolish systemic racism within its ranks
and wholly embrace equity, diversity and inclusivity.
Led by Dr. Vivian Mushahwar, the Network is proud to be established on the foundation of diversity. We are
a multi-disciplinary team that celebrates each member’s unique set of knowledge, expertise and
perspective and are a stronger network because of these individual differences.
We are proud role models of inclusivity and will continue to uphold these principles.
As Desmond Tutu said: "To remain neutral in systems of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. "
The SMART Network is a group of dedicated researchers exploring ways to improve health care.
