Forum 2013

After three consecutive 'sold out' conferences in Kingston, Ontario, CIMVHR and University of Alberta co-hosted the 4th annual Forum in Edmonton Alberta.

Our goal was to create a Forum for knowledge translation, networking and collaboration that would ultimately improve the health and well-being of our Canadian Military personnel, Veterans and their families – and thanks to the 125 researchers and 430 delegates from military, academia and industry – we believe that we achieved our goal!

A few highlights from Forum 2013 include: The Royal Canadian Legion announcing funding for a Masters Scholarship in Military and Veteran Health Research, Wounded Warriors announcing that Dr. Duncan Shields was awarded its Doctoral Scholarship funding, the release of "Beyond the Line" (McGill-Queen's University Press), CIMVHR's third book, and an impassioned keynote address by The Honourable Donald Ethell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta.

To our delegates, presenters and sponsors, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your participation in and commitment to the Forum 2013.
