Welcome to PICH2GO Calgary!
This year, Pain in Child Health is proud to
collaborate with the Alberta Children’s Hospital on our new initiative,
PICH2GO! PICH2GO is an exciting new series of educational and networking events
co-hosted by Pain in Child Health (PICH) and local children’s hospitals. Over
the course of two days, PICH2GO Calgary will provide its attendees with diverse

clinical practice and research. It is our goal
to engage, empower, and educate families, trainees, clinicians, researchers,
and policy makers to make the world a less painful place for kids!
