Sharing rural research
One of the main objectives of BCRHRx is to promote rural health research projects in British Columbia. To do this, RCCbc welcomes researchers, clinicians and trainees (students) to present their ongoing and/or completed rural health research in a concise, visually interesting and rapid presentation style. The sessions are recorded and available for anyone to view.
The 2022 event goes ahead on Nov. 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.
