We want to thank everyone who attended, presented and supported this year’s YIHR Student Symposium. The day was a huge success and we look forwarded to planning for next year.

Schedule: 2013 YIHR Student Symposium schedule

Date: Tuesday March 26th, 2013

Location: Harry Crowe, 109 Atkinson, York University

Theme: Critical Perspectives on the Future of Health

The YIHR Student Research Symposium fosters students from different disciplines to come together to engage in health-related discussions. In previous years, this event has attracted a top group of innovative cross- disciplinary papers and lively discussion.

The theme for this year’s symposium is Critical Perspectives on the Future of Health to embrace an interdisciplinary discussion on emerging issues and varying contexts that impact the future of health within Canada and internationally. We hope to use this forum as an avenue to share critical perspectives on health care systems, pharmaceutical industry, global health and population health, as well as how the future of health intersects with culture, identity, economy, globalization, environment and governance. Some topics of interest include but are not limited to, social determinants of health, health equity issues, resource sustainability and women’s health.

We encourage your all graduate and undergraduate students attendance to YIHR’s Student Research Symposium.
