Media Invitation -
Members of the media are invited to attend the Interprofessional Health Research (iHR) Day, on March 28, at the Saint John Regional Hospital, 400 University Avenue.

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Anil Adisesh, an internationally recognized researcher and clinical physician in the occupational health field. His talk will focus on the merits of research for a long and healthy working life. Dr. Adisesh also serves as the inaugural J.D.

iHR Day is an annual event where health professionals, academics and post-graduate students from all disciplines present their research results, showcasing a wide range of regional studies. Topics include psychology, chemistry, oncology, emergency medicine, nursing, pharmacy, cardiology and resident training.
The theme is one of collaboration and new researchers also gain experience by presenting their work in a public forum and networking with other researchers. More information on iHR Day, including an agenda, can be found at www.ihrnb.ca.
