11th Annual Bloorview Research Institute Symposium
On November 22, Holland Bloorview's research institute was home to the annual research symposium. This year with the theme of Real life, real impact: Research that changes lives.
With a focus on family engagement in research, the day highlighted the impact and value that comes from engaging families in research beyond the role of a participant. This was featured prominently in keynote talks, scientific TED talks, quick hits and poster presentations.
Hosted by Tom Chau, vice president of research, and family leader Susan Cosgrove, the symposium offered a ground-breaking opportunity for attendees to contribute to a research vision where family engagement was at the core.
