ICES scientist Dr. Eric Benchimol receives Crohn’s and Colitis Canada research grant


ICES scientist Dr. Eric Benchimol has been awarded a $369,560 research grant by Crohn's and Colitis Canada to investigate the effects that rapidly rising childhood-onset inflammatory bowel disease rates have on our healthcare system. “The investigators will measure the amount of variation in the healthcare provided, including differences in wait-times, surgical rates, hospitalization rates, and investigations to determine whether it is associated with differences in outcomes of these children” says Dr. Benchimol. “By doing so, this project will focus attention on how we could improve the care provided, in order to improve the lives of our most vulnerable patients.”
