WCHRI’s annual Research Day is our time to celebrate our successes and achievements. It brings our members and stakeholders 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 academic members. In many cases, the poster 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.)

In the meantime, check out a recap of our 2018 event.

See you in November!
