Celebrating our achievements

Nine outstanding graduate students represented the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry and Western University at the Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF) at the University of Manitoba in June. Their journey to Manitoba began at the London Health Research Day 2017, in March, where each student presented their research. The journey ended with a poster presentation at the National conference.

Each student did a fantastic job presenting at the CSHRF, which is a National poster competition. Many were recognized with awards for their research. Congratulations to all of our representatives.
