Registration is open! Join us for the first presentation in our Expo Series - February 8th

Registration is now open for the first event in our Winter 2021 Expo series. Please join us via Zoom Monday, February 8th for a morning dedicated to honouring the life and work of HELP’s co-founder, Dr. Clyde Hertzman. Honouring the Legacy of Clyde Hertzman: Reflections and Dialogue on 20 years of HELP’s Monitoring System will bring together friends and colleagues to share how Clyde’s legacy continues to influence child development in Canada. Join us as we reflect on the role Clyde played in creating a framework that links population health to human development, emphasizing the special role of early child development as a determinant of health. This session, a first in a series, will give us an opportunity to connect and contemplate together a better, post-COVID world.

Through various research insights and a unique and special dialogue session, Dr. Martin Guhn, Interim Director and Assistant Professor, HELP, SPPH, UBC, Dr. Magdalena Janus, Professor, SPPH, UBC and Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences and Offord Centre for Child Studies, McMaster University, and Dr. Paul Kershaw, Associate Professor, SPPH, UBC and Founder, Generation Squeeze, along with special guests Diana Elliott, Provincial Advisor for Aboriginal Infant Development Programs of B.C., and Her Honour, the Honourable Janet Austin, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, will explore new research and revisit Clyde’s vision for a world where all children and families are thriving and explore how we can get there in these challenging times.
