Brain-Child-Partners Conference & KBHN Partnership Day

Join us at the Brain-Child-Partners Conference and Kids Brain Health Network's Partnership Day | November 6-9, 2017 | Westin Prince Hotel, Toronto

Whether you are a researcher, youth, family member, health professional, educator, policymaker or someone interested in partnering to advance research in brain-based disabilities, this conference is for you!

Our first joint conference with the CHILD-BRIGHT Network gathers all stakeholders touched by childhood neurological disabilities and, under the theme of ‘Reciprocity’, we will listen, collaborate, exchange, and positively impact each other’s work. We share a common goal: improving health outcomes for Canadian children at risk or impacted by brain-based disorders. Together, we can promote a better health care system, better health outcomes, and also promote the transformative impact of brain and child health research in Canada.

We’ve designed our event programming to encourage an open and reciprocal exchange of ideas. We believe that all experts, including patients and families who are the foremost experts on the health issues that touch them, need to work together to successfully translate scientific evidence into better care and create meaningful change in the lives of patients and families.

Kids Brain Health Network (KBHN) would like to invite partners and interested parties (researchers, families) to join us for a Workshop on November 9th 2017, the day after the Brain-Child-Partners conference, to explore the points of intersection between the needs of organizations that serve kids with neurodevelopmental disabilities and their families and the knowledge being developed by KBHN researchers. We will see examples of effective partnerships that are flourishing between our investigators and a range of collaborators.
