Lawson Health Research Institute

The Lawson Health Research Institute (Lawson), located in London, Ontario, is one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in Canada. Committed to furthering scientific knowledge in advancing health care around the world, Lawson utilizes a ‘bench to bedside’ approach to medical research which means the development of new knowledge can be applied directly to patient care within the hospital. Sykes Assistance Services in partnership with the Lawson Health Research Institute is proud to offer HealtheSteps™.
