Women’s Health Research Symposium 2019
May 31 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm
The Women’s Health Research Symposium is hosted by the Women’s Health Research Institute and it will be an opportunity to showcase some of the amazing women’s health research taking place in BC and beyond. This year’s focus will be on Global Women’s health. This symposium will engage researchers and relevant stakeholders, including members of the public, from a wide range of disciplines, backgrounds, and perspectives in order to provide a forum where provincial leaders in women-focused health research can connect and collaborate in order to advance future research and to improve the health of women in the province.
The morning portion of the program will feature a trainee breakfast session, opening remarks as well as presentations and a panel discussion from leading women’s health researchers on various fields of interest. After lunch, delegates will attend one of three concurrent breakout sessions. Delegates are able to choose their breakout session during the online registration process. Breakout sessions will be followed by an afternoon research presentation and the award ceremonies. The symposium will wrap-up at 4:00 pm.
