WCHRI Research Day 2020

November 4, 2020

The Women and Children’s Health Research Institute is proud to be hosting its annual Research Day in 2020. For the first time, Research Day will be held virtually!

Other changes for this year include:

  • Trainees will be judged by WCHRI academic members on their abstract submissions only.
  • The trainees who have earned top grades will have an opportunity to present live during Research Day this year, through a three-minute thesis (3MT-style) format. Presenters will be selected from WCHRI’s three research themes: children’s health and well-being, pregnancy and developmental trajectories and lifelong women’s health.
  • Research Day which will be hosted on an innovative digital event platform, InEvent.

WCHRI’s 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 facilitated and moderated virtual sessions. As well, participants are invited to take part in virtual networking activities!

Research Day will include a presentation and live question and answer session from our keynote speaker, Cara Tannenbaum, professor at the Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy at the Université de Montréal.
