Dilson would like to thank Tania for her contributions to SFU and the Faculty of Health Sciences over the past seven years, where she has been serving in her second term as Dean. Tania distinguished herself as an energetic research leader who showed progress and respect in Reconciliation initiatives within FHS and across SFU. In addition, her own research addresses health and innovation systems, policy and practice, drawing together the life sciences, social sciences and humanities.

Tania has overseen a high-performing faculty well-positioned to bring tremendous strength to SFU as it expands its activities in the domains of health research. We are grateful for her many contributions.
