Researchers Put Child Health Under Microscope at Symposium

October 14, 2010 7:05 AM | News

The Manitoba Institute of Child Health (MICH) is presenting the 6th Annual Child Health Research Day today at the Brodie Centre.

The day-long symposium is providing insight on what’s been accomplished to date, and some of the challenges associated with the dark side of drugs. Teratology, adverse side effects of valued drugs, and societal problems such as fetal alcohol syndrome will also be examined.

“In addition to the wealth of knowledge and research that our presenters will be sharing with us, this symposium provides an outstanding research training and educational opportunity with over fifty MSc, PhD, and postdoctoral research fellows presenting their ongoing research in interactive poster sessions,” said Dr. Kent HayGlass, chair of the event. “Child Health Research Day is a free event, and we welcome all audiences with an interest in child health research.”

The day will begin with an opening ceremony in the Frederic Gaspard Theatre (Theatre A) of the Basic Medical Sciences Building at 8 a.m.
