Meet St. Joe’s New VP of Research: Dr. Lehana Thabane

Meet Dr. Lehana Thabane, Vice President of Research at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and Scientific Director of The Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton! Dr. Thabane is an academic leader and researcher who has more than 20 years of experience pioneering health research and clinical trials methodology that have greatly contributed to the medical field in Canada, and around the world.
