On June 1, 2:00 – 4:00 pm, we invite you to participate in a

initiatives for health research and how they affect you and your
ability to carry out anthropological research. Room/Salle: MB-S2-210.

MacDonald, Peter Stephenson and James Waldram will present statements.
We also welcome CIHR Scientific Directors Joy Johnson (Gender &
Health) and Colleen Flood (Health Services and Research Policy), and

and strategies for obtaining funding for your anthropological research.
