Save the Date! Women's+ Health Research Trainee Conference

February 28, 2023

Save the date!

We are pleased to announce our collaboration with the Partnership for Women's Health Research Canada to host a virtual "Women's+ Health Trainee Research Conference" on June 14th, 2023 from 9AM-12:30PM PST.

This conference will provide trainees with the opportunity to showcase their research on women's+ health through oral and poster presentations. It will engage trainees across a wide variety of fields, including biomedical, clinical, health systems services, population public health, social sciences, and more — We strongly encourage participation from individuals who are addressing equity issues in women's+ health! The overall objective of this conference is to build knowledge translation capacity in trainees, facilitate new research connections, and disseminate multidisciplinary women's+ health research.

We will also have an expert panel discussion, which will include seven-minute informal presentations and allow panelists to share what they wish they had known about working in the field of women's+ health, and what it is like to be a women's+ health research leader and scientist. There will then be a moderated discussion where panelists will answer questions and share their wisdom about how trainees can prepare themselves for a career in women’s+ health. These questions will be generated in advance by trainees from PWHR and WHRC audiences.
