18th Annual Child Health Research Days

Join us for a hybrid event

Oct. 26 & 27, 2022


One of the key highlights of CHRD is the trainee development session, where emerging scientists from many health disciplines have the opportunity to share their research and be recognized for their outstanding scientific accomplishments. Thanks to our research community, the trainee development session has seen tremendous growth over the past 17 years.

This year, despite being virtual, we had more than 60 posters showcasing the amazing research happening right here in Manitoba!

Special thanks to the Abstract Adjudication Committee who were tasked with the very difficult job of carefully assessing all of the abstracts presented and identifying particularly impactful research that was featured in Dr. Goodbear’s Den.

Here are the awards for this year’s Dr. Goodbear’s Den Presentations.
