McMaster nursing professor Heather Arthur has won the 21st Annual Terry Kavanagh Prize from the Canadian Association of Cardiac Rehabilitation (CACR), making her the first female and first nurse to receive the award.
As this year's recipient, she will deliver the keynote Terry Kavanagh Lecture at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Montreal on October 17.
According to the CACR, the purpose of the prize and lecture is "to acknowledge nationally and internationally well known researchers, program leaders, and leaders who embody the remarkable achievements of Dr. Terence Kavanagh as he led the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute - now known as the Toronto Rehabilitation Centre - in research in exercise physiology that established the scientific basis for cardiac rehabilitation."
Each year an award winner is selected who has provided at least 10 years of leadership, experience and contribution to the field of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation; displayed a high level of research and other academic productivity; has a notable record of peer-reviewed grants, publications and presentations; and had a national and international impact.
"She is one of the leading scientists in the country in the area of cardiac rehabilitation, cardiovascular disease, and women's cardiac health," said Dr. Paul Oh, medical director of the Cardiac Program at Toronto Rehab, who nominated Arthur for the award.
...
Arthur said: "This award is a generous recognition of my contributions to cardiac rehabilitation as both a scientist and an advocate. Being the first woman to receive the Terry Kavanagh Prize, I plan to focus my lecture on women as patients, providers and scientists. It seems fitting."
Arthur began her career at McMaster University in 1981. She currently holds the Heart and Stroke Foundation/Michael G. DeGroote Endowed Chair in Cardiovascular Nursing Research and is also the Chief Scientific Officer at Hamilton Health Sciences. Arthur is a past president of the CACR, as well as board member, and scientific and educational contributor.

Dr. Heather Arthur Chief Scientific Officer, Hamilton Health Sciences Professor Emeritus, McMaster University
Over the past four years, Dr. Heather Arthur has served with distinction as the Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) for Hamilton Health Sciences. She has developed a very successful program for the development and mentorship of health professional staff and several have received external awards and conducted important research. She has also been HHS' representative at the Council for Academic Hospitals of Ontario serving as a member of the Research Committee, and has worked closely with the Research leadership to provide overall direction to the development of research priorities and strategy at HHS.
Heather's unwavering commitment, dedication, contributions and accomplishments as CSO have significantly influenced the landscape of research across HHS; in particular for clinical health professionals who had the desire to pursue research ideas. She was always available to consult and advise employees in an encouraging manner while ensuring expectations, accomplishments, accountabilities and deliverables were met in terms of productivity.
Heather created a resource platform that has proven to be successful in supporting HHS clinical health professionals who are passionate about research and want to broaden their knowledge base or to improve/inform best practices in the delivery of patient care. During her four-year tenure as CSO, she established and implemented three essential funding programs as well as produced a biennial report highlighting research accomplishments across all health profession disciplines: a) the Research Travel Award, b) the Health Professional Investigator Operating Grant, and c) the Clinical Health Professional Research Career Award.
Collectively, these three programs provide a foundation for HHS clinical health professionals to build upon and successfully compete in external peer-reviewed funding opportunities. Since the inception of these programs, more than 30 health professionals have been funded with Heather mentoring several individuals from various disciplines including: pharmacy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychology, genetic counselor, nutrition, and nursing. Her legacy will carry on with those fortunate enough to have developed under her stewardship, but also for those who will benefit from these programs in years to come.
Please join me in congratulating Heather on a well-deserved retirement effective June 30, 2014. Heather has asked that no formal recognition be held in her honour. Instead, she openly welcomes colleagues and staff wanting to express congratulatory wishes to contact her directly via email arthurh@mcmaster.ca.
