CIHR journalist workshops provide the opportunity for health and science reporters to meet face to face with some of Canada's most renowned researchers from various health research fields. Each workshop focuses on a specific health topic and, essentially connects researchers and journalists in an effort to facilitate networking, foster relationships and ultimately enhance knowledge in health research.
Our next journalist workshop will be in June 2013 in Toronto on Gender and health. The presentations will be in english.
