Register for the Women's+ Heath Research Trainee Conference

April 27, 2023

We are pleased to invite you to register for our upcoming Women's+ Health Research Trainee Conference, taking place on June 14th, 2023! We are collaborating with the Partnership for Women's Health Research Canada to showcase current research on women's+ health from diverse fields. People across the gender spectrum benefit from research dedicated to women’s+ health. PWHR and the WHRC use the term women to refer to all people who identify as women. We use trans and non-binary as umbrella terms to refer to people with a wide range of gender identities that are different from the gender they were assigned at birth. 

This conference will showcase trainee research across a wide variety of fields, such as biomedical, clinical, health systems services, population and public health, social sciences, and more, through oral and poster presentations. We are excited to have individuals who are addressing equity issues in women’s+ health, as well as projects that use quantitative, qualitative or mix methods! The conference will also include an expert panel discussion, where Dr. Liisa Galea, Dr. Lori Brotto, and Dr. Rulan Parekh will 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.

Join us for the chance to learn more about the women's+ health research being conducted across multiple fields, network with peers, and identify new potential collaborators for your research! The session is open to anyone interested in attending.

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.

If you have questions about this conference, please contact our Event & Communications Assistant (Avani Dhunna) at
