Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Dr. Dan Wang completed her PhD in Public Health from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK, Hong Kong SAR), with a research specialization in geriatric epidemiology and urban health. She also holds a Bachelor’s degree in Medicine (Southern Medical University, China) and a Master’s degree in Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CUHK). In order to inform evidence-based prevention and rehabilitation strategies, she has developed research interests in extensively exploring the potential factors contributing to functional wellness, frailty, and disability. Having joined the CDPR team in September 2019, she has primarily worked on 1) a CCRF funded project in understanding health care utilization for musculoskeletal disorders and disability in Canada; 2) a project collaborating with the Cochrane Rehabilitation in systematically identifying potential criteria attributes of outcome reporting in RCTs of rehabilitation interventions.
