Invitation to attend the 9th Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting of the Canadian Consortium for Children’s Bone Health (CCCBH)
On behalf of the Canadian Consortium for Children’s Bone Health Annual Meeting Co-Chairs and Planning Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the Consortium’s 9th Annual Meeting. The meeting will take place in person on Thursday February 8, 2024, from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM CST. at the Delta Marriott Hotel Bessborough (601 Spadina Crescent East, Saskatoon, SK S7K 3G8). This hotel is the closest hotel to the main CPEG Annual Scientific Meeting venue, just 4–5 minutes away on foot. A buffet-style dinner will be served at 6:00 PM CST, and the meeting will start at 6:30 PM CST.
This year's CCCBH Annual Meeting will include a Keynote Address on “Bone Fragility Presenting under the Umbrella of Child and Youth Protection: What Every Bone Health Consultant Needs to Know”. The Keynote Address will be followed by an interactive “case walk-through” that addresses the same topic in a step-by-step fashion facilitated by multi-disciplinary experts. The event will finish with 10-minute oral presentations (interesting case reports or original research).
Trainees, faculty and allied health professionals are all welcome to attend! As in the past, attendees will receive 3 CME credits, with the event accredited by the Canadian Society for Endocrinology and Metabolism.
The deadline for submission of 300-word interesting cases or original research abstracts is January 1, 2024. Abstract selections will be made known to attendees in early January 2024 by the Abstract Selection Committee; both trainees and faculty are eligible for oral presentations. Abstracts should be submitted to KidsBonesCanada@cheo.on.ca by the deadline.
Registration opens on October 15, 2023 and is capped at 100 attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration can be found at Kids Bones Canada. The registration deadline is also January 1, 2024; there is no fee for this event.
If you have any questions, please email KidsBonesCanada@cheo.on.ca.
In addition, the 9th Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting of the CCCBH will serve to kick off the CARDS (Canadian Alliance for Rare Disorders of the Skeleton, a patient-targeted affiliate) 2024 Virtual Series.
