Canadian Undergraduate Conference on Healthcare

The Canadian Undergraduate Conference on Healthcare (CUCOH) is the largest student-run undergraduate healthcare conference of its kind in Canada. Last year, CUCOH welcomed over 400 delegates from over 20 universities. This year's three-day conference will be held November 9-11, 2018 at Queen's University (Kingston). 

As part of the annual conference, a research competition is held for students to present any original research they may have undertaken during their summer months and/or during their undergraduate years. This is a valuable opportunity to showcase the efforts of students to their national peers as well as to a panel of scholarly judges. Monetary prizes and certificates in various categories are also awarded. 
 
We would like to take this opportunity to invite any students to submit an application and take part in this year's research competition. We accept submissions for poster and/or oral presentations ranging from the categories of Biomedical Sciences to the Social Sciences. The deadline for submissions is September 9, 2018 and details can be found on our website https://www.cucoh.com/research.
 
We would greatly appreciate if you could share this email with any students or colleagues that may be interested. 
 
Thank you for your time and consideration. 
 
Sincerely,
CUCOH Research Team

She did see an audiologist for tinnitus in her left ear and about dizzy spells, which she thought were vertigo. When headaches became debilitating, Lynn sought medical attention. An MRI found the brain tumour.
