This event will be presented by Helen Brown. Dr. Brown is an Associate Professor with the UBC School of Nursing.

The PHC KT CoP was established in 2015 to bring knowledge translation resources to health research and clinical care professionals across disciplines. The initiative is led by Aggie Black, Director, Health Services & Clinical Research and Knowledge Translation, and Emily Zamora, Clinical Resource Dietitian at PHC, with the support of PHC Research Institute and Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research.

  3. "Share & Solve" -- sharing projects & getting input
