Simon Fraser University's First Annual Women's Health Research Symposium
When: October 25, 2017 | 8:00am - 1:30pm
Location: SFU Burnaby Campus, Fraser-Thompson Room, Diamond Alumni Centre
We invite you to join us for SFU's first annual Women's Health Research Symposium: Examining Diversity across Disciplines, Decades and Distances.
Open to all students, trainees, researchers and anyone interested in connecting with peers and leaders to support the diverse researchers at SFU. There will be a Trainee breakfast and a networking lunch.
The symposium is hosted in collaboration with the Women’s Health Research Institute and will be a great opportunity to support and connect with the exceptional multidisciplinary community of researchers and trainees at SFU. The symposium will include panel discussions with high-level speakers from a wide range of disciplines to speak to the symposium theme from different perspectives, discussing intersections between technological, scientific, social, and legal solutions to improve women’s health.
This symposium is aimed, in part, to build on SFU commitments and strengths to engage in collaborative efforts and partnerships with local, national and international activities focused on women’s health and celebrating the engaged women’s health scholarship across SFU faculties.
