Nourish: The Future of Food in Health Care is a collaborative project led by the McConnell Foundation in partnership with Food Secure Canada (FSC), HealthCareCAN, Health Care Without Harm, Canadian Coalition for Green Health Care and other emerging partners.

Nourish seeks to host a Health System Impact Fellow (2018) being funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s (CIHR) whereby PhD students and/or post-doctoral fellows can partner with health system and related organizations (e.g., public, not-for-profit, private for-profit organizations) to accelerate their professional growth and career readiness and advance the organization’s impact goals regarding health system improvement.

Nourish seeks to develop a strong evidence base for the development, implementation and scaling of innovative strategies, practices and policies that improve food in health care facilities. Please read our host profile for details.

The application deadline to CIHR for the fellowship is April 5, 2018 so we encourage those interested to please contact Jennifer Reynolds, member of the Nourish Program Design & Delivery Team (, as soon as possible to explore this opportunity.

We would appreciate your help in sharing this with doctoral trainees and/or post-doctoral students in your networks.
