CCNA Annual Partners Forum and Science Day 2017, Toronto, ON

1 November - 2 November

Each year, the CCNA hosts its Annual Events, providing researchers and partner organizations with the opportunity to hear the latest findings coming out of the consortium and to build new collaborations to advance the science. Particular focus is paid to how CCNA research ideas will impact policy and the quality and care of services received by Canadians with lived experience of dementia.

The CCNA’s 2017 Annual Events will feature symposiums on priority-setting in dementia research (Drs. Yves Joanette, Kathy McGilton, and Tarun Dua); policy movements following the Senate Report on Dementia (Senator Kelvin Ogilvie); and research highlights from CCNA presenters.

Registration is now closed. If you are interested in attending, please email JeeHee Suh (JeeHee.Suh@ladydavis.ca) at CCNA Central Administration. Thank you.
