Dr. Lacaille was the recipient of a Canadian Arthritis Network grant to develop a population-based registry of people with rheumatoid arthritis in BC, and has also won scholarships from the Vancouver Hospital Research Foundation and national awards for her novel research on work disability due to arthritis.
