Hosted by Lawson, the Café Scientifique is a free community event that provides an informal opportunity to get involved with science. Through an open-forum discussion in a casual setting, we address health-related issues of popular interest to the general public.
Each Café Scientifique highlights a particular theme of importance in health research and includes a panel of experts discussing latest practices and findings.
Guests can ask questions, participate in discussion, and gain insights from the speakers, as well as from one another.
The last Café Scientifique, titled "Uncovering Trauma: A Conversation about PTSD and Moral Injury” took place on Thursday, September 28th at Goodwill Industries.
Past Café Scientifique topics have included:
- Making Canada a leader in health care, again
- Innovations in health research
- Made to measure medicine
- Childhood obesity: Its causes and complications
- Understanding addictions.
