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 and engaging education and networking opportunities to further pediatric pain 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!
Our first events are on November 24. The Coping Circus will invite local trainees to work with hospital clinicians and researchers to disseminate evidence based practices to patients and families. Join us later that evening for a PICH Welcome Reception – refreshments will be provided! PICH2GO’s final events are on November 25. First will be our Clinician conference “Unraveling the Puzzle of Pediatric Pain: From Neurons to Narratives,” followed by our Researcher Networking Dinner at the Hotel Alma for all PICH trainees and faculty, including a workshop on powerful speaking for scientists!
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact PICH2GO Director, Dr. Rebecca Pillai Riddell at firstname.lastname@example.org!
