2011–12 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition Prize Winners

Each year at the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) conference IHSPR sponsors a Student Poster Competition. This competition is designed to encourage graduate students to attend and showcase their work at CAHSPR, Canada's pre-eminent health services and policy research conference, and to recognize the outstanding research efforts of up-and-coming health services and policy researchers.

Prizes are awarded to the three top-ranked posters in the amounts of $1,200, $800, and $600, for first, second and third prize respectively. Posters are reviewed by a team of expert reviewers who each devote their time and effort to conducting the reviews.

CAHSPR-IHSPR would like to congratulate the winners of the 2011–12 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition:

  • First place: Angela Ly of the University of Montreal, for her poster "Economic impact of a housing first intervention for homeless people with mental illness: preliminary one year results of the at Home/Chez Soi study"
  • Second place: Hyun Song of McGill University, for her poster "Insurance matters: access to prescription drugs and dental care in children from low income families”
  • Third place: Sathya Karunananthan of McGill University, for her poster "Following the money: keeping health services researchers afloat"

Winners are encouraged to use their prize money to further their careers in health services and policy research. Congratulations to our winners and we look forward to seeing you at next year's CAHSPR conference!
