The Child & Family Research Institute, together with Providence Health Care Research Institute, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute and the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, organize a public lecture each March. The lecture includes several talks by clinicians and scientists on the latest leading-edge health research. Previous topics have included gene and cell therapy, lung health, diabetes, mental health and mobility.

This evening event is open to the general public, with the location rotating each year between the three hospital sites. Registration is available online mid-February.

Video recordings of past education events, including these lectures, are available online. These may be useful for classes, or of interest to those who are unable to attend the CFRI education events.
