NB Social Pediatrics Research Program

Improving the quality of life, health, and long-term outcomes of children and their families in our province by conducting research on “what works” to help our kids

The goal of our research program is to optimize access and service delivery to children who face difficult living circumstances, toxic stress and trauma. These conditions impact health and development as well as a child’s integration into their school and community. 

The research team, based at Horizon Health Network's Saint John Regional Hospital, is led by Dr. Sarah Gander, Dr. Marianne McKenna, and Dr. Annie Murphy-Savoie. They are supported by Sarah Campbell, Research Manager, and Kate Flood, Research Coordinator.

Medical students from Dalhousie Medicine New Brunswick also take the lead on research projects as part of Dalhousie's Research In Medicine program.
