The second-ever KBHN Virtual Conference is coming your way! Let the countdown begin…
We hope you can join us for this year’s conference as we celebrate the power of partnerships to foster scientific innovation and create positive change in the lives of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities (NDD). We know that 10-17% of kids aged 4-14 years in Canada have an NDD. We need to do more to accelerate research breakthroughs, support parents, and change systems to help children reach their full potential.
The 2021 Kids Brain Health Virtual Conference runs from November 8-9 (#KBHNConf2021). This exciting two-day online event will feature a wide array of talented researchers, insightful parents, caregivers and people with lived experience who will speak to the critical role partnerships play in realizing change and inspiring innovation.
Since 2009, the Kids Brain Health Network (KBHN) has collaborated with community, industry, government and non-profit partners to support more than 150 research programs focused on early diagnosis, early intervention and increased family support. KBHN community partners have made, and continue to make, incredible contributions to the development of solutions so kids can live happier and healthier lives. These partnerships are critical to informing and shaping our research.
Be sure to mark your calendars. We look forward to your participation!
