The Occupational Cancer Research Centre and the Institute for Work & Health are delighted to co-host the 2016 CARWH Conference on October 16-18, 2016 at the Chestnut Conference Centre in Toronto.
About the Conference
CARWH conferences have convened scientists, students/trainees, occupational health and safety practitioners, epidemiologists, clinicians, and policy-makers every two years since its inception in 2001. As Canada’s premier meeting focused on work and health research, CARWH conferences seek to bridge important gaps in work and health research by promoting knowledge exchange, research partnerships, and translation of research into the prevention and management of work-related injury and illness.
The 2016 conference is the 9th biennial meeting that will offer a stimulating and diverse program of plenary presentations, parallel and poster sessions, and symposia reflecting the excellence of work and health research across the country. A Student and Trainee Day will be held on Sunday, October 16, and the welcome reception and gala dinner will provide additional opportunities for networking.
