Margolis, MD Center for Health Policy and the Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI), at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina (USA). Before this, Dr. Landry spent seven years as Division Chief of the Duke Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) Division where he led an important rebuilding of the program that has now grown into one of the top physical therapy programs in the United States. Prior to receiving his doctoral degree, he held clinical and senior management positions within the private rehabilitation sector in Ontario (Canada), and within international humanitarian aid and development agencies. Dr. Landry is a health policy and health services researcher, where his area of study is the policy implication of the gap between available supply (financial and human resources) and increasing demand for rehabilitation and health services across the continuum of care. He is a Past-President of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and a former Career Scientist at the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC). He lectures widely on the policy and political dynamics of rehabilitation and disability, and is a provocative advocate for the moral, ethical and economic necessity to ensure accessible and affordable rehabilitation services across the continuum of high, middle and low-income countries. Dr. Landry completed his Master of Business Administration (MBA) at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business in December 2019, where he also earned a certificate in Health Sector Management (HSM).
