The University of Manitoba is a member of the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) and is co-hosting the upcoming CIMVHR Forum 2024 held on 21-23 of October 2024 at the RBC Convention Centre.

Since 2010, CIMVHR has built a network of 46 Canadian universities which address collectively the health research requirements of the Canadian military, Veterans, and their families. The institute acts as a conduit between the academic community and research funding organizations. CIMVHR works to enhance the health and well-being for the diverse population of Canada’s military personnel, Veterans, public safety personnel and their families. By engaging academic and government research resources, fostering new research, and promoting knowledge translation, CIMVHR plays a crucial role in addressing this population’s unique risks and needs.

Annually, CIMVHR Forum serves as a platform for thought leaders across various sectors to exchange insights, collaborate, and showcase advancements in research and ideas for the betterment of our military personnel, Veterans and their families.

As a co-host for the event, the University of Manitoba benefits from showcasing the talent of our researchers and students.

For more information, please contact the University of Manitoba research committee for the event – Dr. Jitender Sareen (Psychiatry), Ms. Janice Tilly (Interdisciplinary PhD Student) or Dr. Andrea Charron (Centre for Defence and Security Studies).

We want to acknowledge and thank those who have contributed to the co-sponsorship of this forum: Department of Psychiatry, Department of Community Health Services, College of Nursing, Centre for Defence and Security Studies, Price Faculty of Engineering, the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, and funding from UM Conference Sponsorship Program.
