Recommended: That Senate approve and recommend to the Board of Governors, through the Vice-Chancellor, that The Bill and Anne Brock Family Professorship in Child Health be established in perpetuity, under the terms of reference set out below, based on a generous endowed gift from Bill and Anne Brock.
The Bill and Anne Brock Family Professorship in Child Health
|Donor and Funding:||Bill and Anne Brock have made a gift of $1,000,000 for
the establishment of a Professorship in Child Health for
the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Social
Science, and the Department of Family Medicine,
Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. The full amount of
the gift was received in December 2000.
Foundation Western will hold the endowment. To continually enhance the initial value of the endowed fund and protect the value against inflation, a portion of the total return derived from the fund will be capitalized annually, in accordance with the Foundation's policies from time to time adopted. The income capitalized annually in the endowed fund is subject to the Foundation's administrative policies and fund management fees. Foundation Western makes an annual grant to the University from its fund management fees to support the cost of alumni endowment fundraising and donor relations programs.
The amount available for spending each year will be in accordance with the Foundation's Investment Payout Policy as it relates to endowed funds, and which may be amended from time to time.
Funding for the Professorship will be used for salary support, the dissemination of knowledge to the community, partial teaching replacement for the holder of the Professorship and general research expenses.

If an external candidate is identified by the Joint Advisory Group, the Group will forward the recommendation for initial appointment with probation or tenure to the Joint Appointments Committee of the Departments of Psychology and Family Medicine for review under the University's policies and procedures on appointments.|
|Criteria:||The holder of this Professorship will teach graduate and undergraduate students and help raise Western's profile as a premier centre in Canada for child health psychology programs. The appointee will contribute to the undergraduate medical curriculum through small group patient-centered teaching and teach graduate courses in the area of child health. The Professor will supervise Clinical Science graduate students as appropriate, provide research supervision of students enrolled in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program and contribute to seminars for residents in Family Medicine on topics related to child health. The Professor will also develop an independent research program to integrate basic research with field applications by combining the strengths of the Departments of Psychology and Family Medicine, and work closely with community health care practitioners, including family physicians, clinics and social agencies to bring the results of research into the community.|

Although historically Canada has ranked number one among all countries in the world with regard to health care, the state of health, including the psychological health, of Canada's children is still a cause for concern. While recent population health statistics suggest that although historically Canada has ranked number one among all countries in the world, the state of health, including the psychological health, of Canada's children is a cause for concern. Although researchers in the Faculties of Social Science and Medicine & Dentistry are involved in many health-related projects, there is little specific expertise in children's health.
The College of Family Physicians of Canada Task Force on Child Health Report, published in 1977, indicates that family physicians must "play a leading role in addressing factors that influence children's health." By creating a Child Health Professor between Family Medicine and Psychology, an important link between the two departments will be formed, providing expertise in teaching, research and clinical applications. The Professorship will position Western as a leader in child health psychology graduate training and significantly enhance our capacity to graduate more specialists in child health psychology.
