What our delegates say
I attended the Forum to learn about research and program implementation across Canada/US/UK to enable me to take this information back to Australia to enhance our service to the Veteran Community. It has been an invaluable experience. I have made some fantastic connections and obtained a great deal of new knowledge. Thank you all.
Some really good presenters both in talks and posters. I enjoyed the talks the most that bridged research and clinicial practice. It was also very impactful to have speakers who were veterans to discuss their challenges and viewpoints.
