The WCHRI Realizing Healthier Pregnancy Research Cluster welcomes the participation of all pregnancy researchers. We will host bi-monthly presentations to introduce our current research cluster members, present key problems these members seek to address, and work to build our interdisciplinary networks and research engagement to unravel these challenges.

Join us to discuss the ways child development is affected by parental health and well-being and parenting behaviours. Discussion will include working in partnership with families using community-based participatory research (CBPR) to create a more trauma-informed and relational approach to research.

Please share this invitation with your networks; all researchers are welcome! 

Speakers: Matthew Carwana and Myriam Clément

Dr. Matthew Carwana is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia. His research program aims to generate high-impact evidence, innovate new models of health delivery, and change public health policy to eliminate the current adverse health gradient experienced by structurally marginalized children and youth due to the social and structural determinants of health. Matthew works in partnership with patients and families, community organizations and community members to design and implement research projects.

Myriam Clément is a registered nurse and an Assistant Professor in the Nursing Department of the University of Quebec in Outaouais. She has clinical experience in perinatal health and mental health. She is currently completing her PhD in Public Health at the University of Montreal, funded by the Fonds de recherche en Santé du Québec. She will present the results of her thesis work.
