Or will it??


We are pleased to announce we will be extending our call for abstracts until Monday September 24th, 2018! If you have research or are part of a promising practice you think is helping to foster safety and inclusion in your community we encourage you to submit your abstract for our conference, “Building Safe & Inclusive Communities: The Public Health Approach,” happening from November 15th to 16th, 2018 at the Sutton Place Hotel in downtown Vancouver. Click here or copy the link below to read the call and submit yours before it’s too late!
