Call for Poster Fair Abstracts


The Children's Healthcare Canada's Poster Fair provides the ideal venue for multidisciplinary health professionals and practitioners from primary care to complex tertiary care to illustrate the richness of activity in many innovative areas of child and youth health from regional, national, and international perspectives.

The Poster Fair will feature two categories and authors will be asked to submit their abstract in one of the following:
