Medical students and residents will have an opportunity to have dinner with pro-life physicians at this pre-conference event. This is a valuable opportunity for students and physicians to connect one-on-one for networking and informal mentorship. Students and physicians will be seated in groups of 4-6 for dinner.
This event will take place from 4:00 to 5:30 pm on Friday, October 23rd at the Conference Hotel.
Participants are responsible for purchasing their own meal. Canadian Physicians for Life has negotiated a lower-cost dinner menu for our students than what is presented on the restaurant website. Students with allergies or food restrictions will be accommodated. Physicians and students may of course order off the standard menu.
You will register for this event when you register for the conference or when you apply for student sponsorship.
