The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) invites you to our Annual Symposium, The New Science of Child Development presented by the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR).
Our Symposium on early childhood development will explore in depth the multi-faceted factors that shape the health, education, and psychological well-being of our children. Dr. W.

Please join this very important discussion on how we can improve the development and quality of life of our future generations.
This event is open to the public.
