Still deciding if summer school is for you? We have released summaries of all of our sessions to help you decide. You can follow the link below to go to the event page and read all about what we have planned for the two days.


And remember, if you are not able to make the summer school, we will be exploring these topics in greater detail during our annual fall conference, happening at the Sutton Place Hotel in downtown Vancouver on November 14th and 15th, 2019. Keep an eye on the website, later this summer we will be releasing our call for abstracts and early bird registration discounts!
