WCHRI’s annual Research Day is our time to celebrate our members' successes and achievements. It brings our membership 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 researchers. 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).

Mark October 24 in your calendars and check back for more information as it comes available.

In the meantime, check out our recap of our 2017 event!

See you in October!


Note: WCHRI is reducing our print materials as part of our continued commitment to fiscal responsibility and environmental sustainability. Research Day is a scent-free environment and the dress code is business casual. Thank you.
