Agenda at a GlancE

Over the course of three engaging and exciting days, the 2017 Brain-Child-Partners Conference will bring together all stakeholders touched by childhood neurological disabilities to chart a course to promote a better health system, better health outcomes, and promote the transformative impact of brain and child health research in Canada.

Day 1: Monday, November 6, 2017

An exploration of different themes in brain-based developmental disability research through an engaging mix of formats, including talks with "responders," interactive workshops, a Knowledge Translation Innovation Incubator, and a dynamic Marketplace. This will be an opportunity to feature CHILD-BRIGHT's 12 new research projects, research themes, training initiatives, and engagement strategies. Learn more about Day 1 programming.


Day 2: Tuesday, November 7, 2017

A day for collaboration and convergence as we look at how patients, researchers, trainees and other stakeholders can work together and create a better future for families and patients with brain-based developmental disabilities through thought-provoking panel discussions, lightning talks, capped off with a fun poster and networking reception. Learn more about Day 2 programming.


Day 3: Wednesday, November 8, 2017

Day 3 will showcase cutting-edge insights into the origins and treatment of brain-based disabilities and effective strategies for family support, reflecting the priorities identified by families and other stakeholders that now shape the questions we explore as a community. Our trainees will share their latest research findings along with the programs, projects and cores that form KBHN. Learn more about Day 3 programming.
