The Centre for Hip Health and Mobility (CHHM) is a University of British Columbia affiliated, internationally recognized research centre focused on developing novel strategies that promote physically active choices that positively influence mobility. Mobility in turn influences the health of our bones, our joints, our muscles, our hearts, our brains and many other systems in our bodies at every age. Our interdisciplinary team of researchers, clinicians, students, staff and community partners, work together to implement, evaluate and disseminate solutions to some of our health care system’s most pressing and expensive problems.
CHHM is one of the seven Major Research Programs supported by the Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and one of 12 Senate approved centres within the Faculty of Medicine (FOM) at UBC.
In March 2013, the Ministry of Health entered into a partnership with the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility to develop and implement an innovative and effective plan to improve the health and well-being of Canadians and ABC is part of that plan.
