Parent & Child 2019 Wraps Up

The Department of Maternity Care and Pediatrics just wrapped up their annual meeting and educational conference in Nanaimo.

Almost 100 department members enjoyed two days of presentations and networking time with maternity care and pediatrics colleagues from across Vancouver Island. Presentations included topics such as cultural safety, cannabis use and pregnancy, fetal echocardiography and more. There was also a special presentation open to the public by Dr. Brett Finlay, UBC microbiology professor and author of Let Them Eat Dirt.

Department Head, Dr. Keith Menard would like to thank all the presenters and colleagues who helped make the event happen. "The members of our department are a wonderful, engaged and dedicated group of people. I am looking forward to the next conference, and continuing to build on what we have created. Thank you everyone!" said Dr. Menard.
