Protecting the Future: How the Environment Impacts Child Health
October 2-4, 2018: Canadian Museum for Human Rights & Fort Garry Hotel

The Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba is proud to be hosting the 14th Annual Child Health Research Days (CHRD). This year’s theme is Protecting the Future: How the Environment Impacts Child Health.

CHRD is an exciting and unique event focused on innovative child health research happening in Manitoba, Canada, and around the world. 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, CHRD will once again be held at the globally renowned Canadian Museum for Human Rights, with a gala dinner at the historic Fort Garry Hotel. Guests will also have the opportunity to use their event passes to explore the museum at their leisure throughout the conference.

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

The first evening of CHRD is open to the general public, and this year will feature internationally renowned scientist and public speaker, Dr. Michael Skinner. Click here for more information.

About this year’s theme

When it comes to shaping children’s health, we know there are many factors at play. This year, our theme of “environment” allows us to explore the many different environmental impacts on health – whether they be physical, such as air pollution and water quality; or social, such as trauma and stress. Our fantastic line-up of speakers each offer unique and expert insights to bring the many different environmental determinants of health together for an inspiring and educational look at the overall picture of pediatric health.
