The British Columbia Rural and Remote Health Research Network (BCRRHRN) invites proposals from British Columbia researchers (individuals or teams) interested in seizing the opportunity to gather together to strategize next steps in their research areas.  They will do this by leading themed rural and remote health research forums to be held as a Thursday afternoon pre-conference event of the Canadian Rural Health Research conference (October 19-21).  The purpose of a themed research forum will be:

  1. Provide an overview of current research in the area
  2. Encourage a dynamic discussion of possible research agenda
  3. Facilitate the development of collaborative relationships to move research agendas forward.

Proposals should indicate:

  1. Research area
  2. Personal objectives for the forum
  3. Propose format for forum (1:00-4:00 time frame)
  4. Space and technical needs
