2023 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 and post-doctoral fellows 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, $1,000, and $800, 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 and IHSPR would like to congratulate the winners of the 2023 CIHR-IHSPR/CAHSPR Student Poster Competition:

  • First prize: Kamilla Saadi from the Université de Montréal for the poster "Perspectives des canadiens atteints de sclérose en plaques sur le cannabis médical: Co-construction d’un questionnaire."
  • Second prize: Komal Aryal from McMaster University for the poster "Employing Machine Learning Methods to Predict COVID-19 Death for Vaccinated and Un-Vaccinated Long-Term Care Residents."
  • Third prize: Bekelu Negash from the University of Manitoba for the poster "Experiences of African Immigrant/Refugee Women with Prenatal and Maternal Health Care Services and Treatment Adherence in Winnipeg, Manitoba".

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!
