5th Annual MCHRI Symposium
Thursday, October 20, 2022
Li Ka Shing Center

Thank you for joining us for the 2022 Symposium!

This annual research symposium brought together faculty, trainees, students, and postdocs to explore the latest developments and innovations in maternal and child health research. 

This year's Symposium looked a bit different from past years, with keynote presentations featuring leaders in Community-Engaged Research, as well as opportunities for researchers to connect with community partners. 

As in previous years, the symposium also featured abstracts and a poster hall from across the Stanford research community, a focused scientific session (highlighting neurodevelopment), and the researchers and scientists who are making an impact in the maternal and child health community

This event was free and open to all.
