Panel sessions focus on best practice for investigation and on assessing policy and program effectiveness, along with roundtable discussion on needs and next steps in knowledge and practice.

The public and university community are welcome to attend as observers. Open seating for observers is provided in the Convocation Hall balcony (up to 70 seats). ASL interpretation and childcare are provided and the venue is wheelchair accessible. For questions or details on the Symposium program, please email wbmpartnership@uwinnipeg.ca.
