Upcoming Events
One of the NS-PIHCI’s goals is to develop and foster innovative primary health care research.  We will be hosting a series of informal “Project Incubator” discussions to encourage the development of research questions and connections between members with similar interests.  The first series continues the conversations begun at the October 8 Information Day:
  • Integrated Care: Addressing the needs of priority populations (Jan. 12)
  • High-system users: Tackling the issues (Jan. 19)
  • Complex needs across the life course: Children and Youth (Jan. 26)
All Project Incubator discussions will occur from 12 - 1 pm by teleconference and in person (8th floor, Abbie J. Lane Building, 5909 Veterans Memorial Lane). Let us know if you plan to attend any of these sessions by emailing  

Member Updates

We want to hear from you!  Members are encouraged to inform NS-PIHCI of recent publications, successful grant applications or other activities.  We will highlight these events on the news section of our website.
