Imagine that you were in intense pain and you were unable to ask for help or that no one believed you when you did.
Almost 1 in 5 Canadian sufferers from chronic pain and associated issues – the majority of these, are women.

Hear from researchers developing technology to help identify when someone is in pain.

Women’s Brain Health Initiative has also been touched by the COVID-19 pandemic. We have tentatively rescheduled all of our events to the fall. We will continue to monitor the situation closely to determine the best approach for each of our upcoming events and may need to make further scheduling changes. Your safety is our top priority. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
