Dec. 2 CE Event Schedule and Registration

Here are the details about the upcoming continuing education webinar that is happening on December 2, 2019 from 9 – 3 pm PST. The event is broadly covering authorship and publishing for Health Librarians. We have chosen to host the event as a webinar so members who are outside of the Vancouver/Lower Mainland region have the opportunity to a continuing education event. What is also exciting about having the event as a webinar is the ability to invite health librarians and researchers from across Canada to speak, which is why we are able to have such an extensive breadth of speakers.

If you are in the lower mainland area and don’t have a good office space to attend or don’t want to deal with the technology you are welcome to join from a teleconferencing room at Children’s and Women’s Hospital. Email Colleen (colleenpawliuk@gmail.com)for room details and directions.

If you’re interested in attending, here is a link for registration: https://forms.gle/WQRECDcUSChaujYU7
