Brain-Child-Partners Conference - Toronto, ON


Brain-Child-Partners Conference

Westin Prince Toronto
900 York Mills Road, Toronto, ON
November 6-8, 2017

Whether you are a researcher, youth, family member, health professional, educator, policymaker or someone interested in partnering to advance research in brain-based disabilities, this conference is for you. 

Neurological conditions affect an estimated 3.6 million Canadians. Of these, as many as 850,000 are children who face life-long challenges with mobility, language, learning, socialization, and/or self-care that will impact their quality of life and create special challenges for the families of these children. 

The Brain-Child-Partners Conference gathers all stakeholders touched by childhood neurological disabilities and, under the theme of ‘Reciprocity’, we will listen, collaborate, exchange, and positively impact each other’s work. We share a common goal: improving health outcomes for Canadian children at risk or impacted by brain-based disorders. Together, we can promote a better health care system, better health outcomes, and also promote the transformative impact of brain and child health research in Canada.
