We, at the CFWH, are thrilled to be hosting an exciting fundraising and networking event June 21, 2017 at the beautiful Courtyard Restaurant in the famous Byward Market of Ottawa. This will follow the days events at the ACSC and is walking distance from the Westin Ottawa.
Please join us for food, drinks, entertainment and the opportunity to mingle with your friends and colleagues.
Event Details: The action packed evening will start at 6pm.
While enjoying a short walk from the conference, you can learn about First Nations history on the way to the Courtyard Restaurant; a great way to celebrate National Aboriginal Day! You will be greeted with live music, food and beverages upon arrival. There will also be a chance for you to win a draw prize! The night will include First Nations dancing, a fabulous dinner* and a live auction! To cap the night, you can pull out your dancing shoes with our live DJ!

At the event, we will also be updating you on the exciting work the CFWH has been doing over the past year as well as providing information on opportunities for the betterment of newborn/maternal health going forward.
The CFWH is currently administering many meaningful projects and grants.
A few examples include :
Dr Dr. Kristi Adamo ( University of Ottawa) has done incredible work with obesity and maternal health.
Dr. Pamela Liao’s advocacy work for women’s health partnered with the United Nations has been supported in part by the CFWH.
Dr. Patricia Janssen’s (University of British Columbia) work to protect at-risk pregnant women from domestic violence was also supported in part by the CFWH.
Dr. Andrée Gruslin’s (University of Ottawa) research into reducing widespread and often dangerous pregnancy complications for women suffering from obesity and at McMaster University.
Dr. Laurie Elit’s work that looked at adolescents’ understanding and behavior surrounding Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) have been projects we have supported.
These are just a few of the groundbreaking CFWH-funded research projects across Canada that are improving health for women of all ages. From menstruation to contraception, from childbirth to menopause and beyond, CFWH-supported research translates directly into improvements in the sexual and reproductive health of Canadian women.
