This event will be open to all stakeholders of the NB PIHCI Network, those interested in joining the Network, researchers, and community members that would like to know more about New Brunswick health research. It will be held on Thursday, May 10, from 6 - 9 p.m., in UNB Saint John's Grand Hall.   Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. to provide an opportunity to mingle, a cash bar and appetizers. Margaret Melanson, Vice President of Quality and Patient Centred Care for Horizon Health Network, will be our guest speaker.
 
The NB Network in Primary and Integrated Health Care Innovations (PIHCI) will be granting three awards, up to $5,000 each, to select research teams who are proposing to work on a project that responds to the NB PIHCI Priorities. The grant money awarded can be used for conducting a research project, grant writing, patient engagement activities, knowledge translation, research related travel, publishing in a journal, and hosting an event, among other research activities. On May 10th, invited research teams will have an opportunity to pitch their research through a 10-minute presentation in front of our patient panel, the PIHCI Advisory Committee, and the general audience for a chance to be granted one of these three $5,000 awards. The event will follow with an opportunity to network afterwards.
 
We ask that you register by Friday, May 4, 2018.
