About the Virtual Symposium Series

For over ten years, CIMVHR has been working with academia, military, Veterans, clinicians and practitioners, government, industry and philanthropy to advance military, Veteran and family health research in Canada. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIMVHR worked to find a safe way to gather, discuss and disseminate emerging research by creating the CIMVHR 2020 Virtual Symposium Series.

As a result of the success and positive feedback from the series, CIMVHR will continue to host virtual symposiums throughout 2021, with the first symposium focusing on families.

Throughout the year, we will add symposia that will focus on themes in emerging areas that will benefit our military, Veterans and their families. Each symposium will feature expert presenters and an opportunity for participants to engage and ask questions. The symposium series is free of charge and open to everyone interested in advancing military, Veteran and family health research.

This is a virtual opportunity to learn, to connect and to serve those who serve us.
