Still time to register for important CARWH conference in Toronto
An upcoming conference focused on work and health research will offer a forum for health and safety advocates to connect and learn about significant new findings in the field. 
The Canadian Association for Research on Work and Health (CARWH) is a non-profit association of researchers. Its conferences held every two years bring together scientists, students, occupational health and safety practitioners, clinicians, and policy-makers to help bridge important gaps in work and health research. Ontario’s Occupational Cancer Research Centre and the Institute for Work & Health are co-hosting this year’s conference.
Scientists, students, and stakeholders from across Canada will present research findings on a range of topics from workplace health hazards and the prevention of occupational injury and disease to issues related to aging and gender.
The conference keynote speeches, sessions, and symposia will focus on the following major themes:
  • Worker populations and work contexts
  • Health outcomes
  • Occupational exposures
  • Interventions, policy, and knowledge translation & exchange.
