null Provincial mother-child research conference (October 29-30, 2020)

Date: October 29-30, 2020



The CHU de Québec-Université Laval research center, in collaboration with the three other major pediatric research centers in Quebec, are pleased to announce that the fourth edition of the provincial conference on mother-child research will take place on the 29 and October 30, 2020 but in a virtual form! The conduct and conviviality of the congress will be preserved as much as possible. Thus, as previously announced, this year the congress is innovating by setting up a theme: decompartmentalized health.

From planning a pregnancy to the fetal period, from birth to early development of the child, to the adolescent and his or her behaviors, health cannot be understood outside of its broader context that includes environment, family, infrastructure and community. This research decompartmentalization, at the intersection of several individuals, ages and disciplines, facilitates the emergence of new knowledge, both in basic and clinical research. This is the only way to approach the complex problems and contemporary challenges in mother-child research.

The organizing committee warmly thanks the Fondation des Étoiles for their support.
