Making Canada a leader in health care, again

Sep. 15, 2015

Lawson Health Research Institute presents a Café Scientifique Event

Our health care system is a Canadian legacy. However, many Canadians are worried that we are falling behind compared to other countries. Research institutes are working to improve patient care, but are being met by substantial barriers to funding.

At Lawson’s Café Scientifique event tomorrow evening, a panel of three Lawson researchers will discuss these challenges and how we can better support health research and innovation. Following the talks is an open-forum discussion where guests can ask questions, participate in discussion, and gain insights from the speakers, as well as from one another.

Members of the media are invited to attend this free, sold-out community event. A number of political candidates from London and area federal electoral ridings will be in attendance.
