Caring for our health care system

8:30pm - 11:00pm




Caring for our health care system:
Why we should give a darn about medical research   

What does health care mean to Canadians? What about those of us who have experienced a care journey first-hand, either as a patient or family member? Health care is a point of pride in this country, but many Canadians worry that our system is falling behind. 

Every day, health researchers are working with patients, industry and other partners to find real and sustainable solutions. Despite recent investments in medical research on a national level after years of underfunding, there is still much work to do.  

Join Lawson Health Research Institute for our next Café Scientifique event to hear a panel of researchers talk about what they do and why medical research matters for all of us.
