SCPOR Affiliated Researcher Alliance (ARA) Launch

The Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research (SCPOR) is proud to host the official launch of the Affiliated Researcher Alliance (ARA). The purpose of this event is for SCPOR to welcome researchers to the ARA and to provide an opportunity for researchers to meet other ARA members that they may want to form research collaborations with. The event will include a structured networking opportunity.

The ARA comprises almost 60 researchers from across the province, representing research areas from a variety of disciplines, but not limited to health systems modelling, cancer research, business, math and stats, Indigenous research, nursing, public health, psychology and pediatrics. A full list of ARA members can be found below.

Food will be served throughout the event.
