A mix of invited speakers, both Fraser Health and Non-Fraser Health researchers, are brought together to present their work on a variety of topic areas. Topics include research that is currently being conducted at Fraser Health or elsewhere but is related to health care services delivery, completed studies, and other relevant research related information. These Cafes are held three times a year and are a great opportunity for networking between researchers and for bringing together researchers and decision-makers.

Date: May 10, 2017
An opportunity for Fraser Health leaders in women-focused health research to learn more about WHRI and how they can connect and collaborate in order to advance future research and to improve the health of women in BC.
