Health Research Seminar Series

The UNBC Health Research Institute, with input from the School of Health Sciences, School of Nursing, School of Social Work, the Northern Medical Program and other units across campus, are excited to announce the establishment of a regular Health Research Seminar Series this fall.

The goal of the Health Research Seminar Series is to offer a regular place for students and faculty to engage in discussions about current health research from across all programs and campuses of UNBC. The Series runs every 4 weeks during the Fall and Winter semesters. To ensure everyone can access the presentations, each session will be broadcast via Zoom and recorded for viewing on this site. The HRI would like to recognize Sun Life Financial for their contribution to the seminar series.

Please visit this page for updates to the schedule and topics. Zoom recordings of the presentations will be added to this page following each presentation.
