The Women's Brain Health Initiative Trainee-Mentor Sessions intend to provide students with the opportunity to meet and engage with sex and gender experts through informal conversations on diverse topics including professional development and research. To ensure an intimate and valuable experience, each Trainee-Mentor session will be limited to 30 registrants.

Incorporating sex and gender considerations in research can take effort, but in knowledge translation, where do you begin? Dr. Sarah Munro will discuss approaches to knowledge translation that keep sex and gender in mind, and relate some practical examples from her research in sexual and reproductive health.
