WCHRI Research Day

Keynote: Dr. David Nicholas

WCHRI will host its annual Research Day on November 2. This year our format will again be entirely online.

WCHRI Research Day 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. Presentations for Research Day will be combined into themed sessions and presented in moderated virtual sessions. 

We are delighted to welcome David Nicholas as our keynote speaker. Nicholas is a professor in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary. He will be discussing his CIHR-funded research on the psychosocial and health consequences of COVID-19 on children with health vulnerabilities and their families.
