2017 Research Day

Join us for WCHRI's 10th Annual Research Day

October 25, 2017 at the Westin Hotel, 
7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Registration and abstract submission is now open! Note that the abstract submission deadline is 11:59 p.m., September 12, 2017.

WCHRI’s annual Research Day is our time to celebrate our successes and achievements. It brings our membership together to share common interests and research outputs on women and children’s health, and is a great venue for our trainees to communicate their recent work, discuss their research and network with colleagues. All of our trainees will share their research at Research Day through either a poster or oral presentation. Each presentation will be judged by two WCHRI researchers. In many cases, the judges will be “shadowed” by stakeholders of the Foundations that support WCHRI in our work (the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation.)

October 25th will mark the tenth annual WCHRI Research Day at the Westin Hotel in downtown Edmonton. We expect over 450 WCHRI members, trainees and partners to attend.

The day will include professional development workshops, a renowned keynote speaker, Dr. Andreas Laupacis, and great networking opportunities for our membership.

This interactive day gives us the opportunity to celebrate our breakthroughs in health research that impact the lives of women and children and their families. By interacting with researchers, trainees, funders and community members, we can create new opportunities to join together for further research development.

We invite you to share our successes on October 25, 2017. Our trainees are eager to show you their world of discoveries and advances and share their efforts to improve outcomes for all women and children through health research.

See the Research Day pages (links on the right) for additional information.

*Reminder: It is imperative that you acknowledge funding of your research. Please use the WCHRI and Foundation logo(s) on your poster or presentation slides if your research has been supported by WCHRI.*

See you in October!

Note: Research Day is a scent-free environment and the dress code is business casual. Thank you.
