On Friday March 10th, the UBC Department of Pediatrics held our Annual Celebrate Pediatric Research Day showcasing the research being done by our pediatric trainees. It was a fantastic day, demonstrating a high standard of research and efforts being done across the various trainee levels. Congratulations to everyone who came out to present their work!
We would like to give a huge thanks to our judging panel, Dr. Ross Petty, Dr. Anne Junker, Dr. Jean-Pierre Chanoine and the poster presentation judges Dr. Dina Panagiotopoulos and Dr. Caron Strahlendorf.
