Join us on May 12th and 13th as we come together in Thunder Bay for Northern Connections hosted by the NOSM University Health Sciences Unit. Northern Connections is intended as a professional development, networking and appreciation event for those clinicians who support our Health Sciences programs, including dietitians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists and physician assistants.
Have you been working on an exciting clinical education or clinical practice initiative that you want to share with your Northern Ontario colleagues? This year we will be accepting abstracts from our Health Sciences clinical community who would like to present their work. You can submit an abstract for a short oral presentation, a poster presentation or a workshop. Abstracts are due no later than March 1, 2023.

Registration will open in mid-March once the schedule has been finalized. We are pleased to provide this event at no cost to those clinicians supporting our Health Sciences programs. Registrants are responsible for their travel and accommodation expenses. The presentations, awards event and dinner will take place on Friday, May 12th. Social and networking events are being planned for Saturday, May 13th.
This event will only be taking place in-person. More information will be shared in the coming weeks through our mailing list and on our website. In future years, we will alternate the conference between Northeastern and Northwestern locations.
