Event Details

About the Event

Speakers: Bev Holmes, PhD, C. Dir, MA, David Patrick, MD & (moderator) Cindy Trytten, CHE, MSc.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, health research findings saved lives and eased the suffering of millions across the globe. But there is no question that the unprecedented mobilization of research could have been more effective. As we come out of the pandemic, what are the lessons learned about the role of research in a global pandemic? In particular, how did BC fare in comparison to other jurisdictions, and where might we play to our strengths and address our weaknesses? Join BC Strategic Research Advisory Committee Co-Chairs David Patrick and Bev Holmes for a conversation about what went well, what did not go well, and where we go from here as our provincial research system builds back better after COVID-19.
