The Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba is proud to be hosting the 13th Annual Child Health Research Days (CHRD). This year’s theme is Pathways to Equity: Better Health for All Children.

CHRD is an exciting and unique event focused on innovative child health research happening in Manitoba, Canada, and around the world, and focusing on a different theme each year. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from internationally acclaimed speakers on a range of pertinent topics; network and collaborate with fellow researchers; participate in workshops and discussion sessions; and learn about exciting advancements in the future of child health from our trainees.

This year, for the first time, CHRD will be held off campus at the globally renowned Canadian Museum for Human Rights and the historic Fort Garry Hotel.

Also for the first time this year, CHRD will offer a panel discussion open to the general public. This will take place on the first night at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and will focus on healing from trauma, featuring experts and parents who will share advice and firsthand experiences. There is no cost to attend the public panel discussion and everyone is welcome – registration is not required for this portion of the event.

CHRD provides a stimulating educational environment for both PIs and trainees, with opportunities for trainees to participate in poster sessions and the Dr. GoodBear’s Den oral competition.
