SAVE THE DATE! October 21st, 2013 has been set for our Annual Fall Research Exposition.This FREE full day event will take place at UBC Robson Square in Vancouver. On-line registration will open on September 10th, 2013.

This year, we will present new research findings that have furthered our understanding of factors that can support and enhance the well-being of children in BC: from policy environments, to communities, to families.  This theme was central to Clyde Hertzman's vision and research.  This full day event will include several keynote presentations, and hands-on workshops with researchers that will deepen your understanding of our important research.
