The dissemination of health research findings is one of its more important functions and CHRC has successfully hosted its Annual Research Conference every year since 1956. Usually held the third week in April, this is the largest health research conference in the English speaking Caribbean with over 200 delegates in attendance.
The latter comprise researchers, policy makers and care providers creating a unique network of health stakeholders who share needs, information and experiences. The Conference venue is rotated throughout the Caribbean and it is often hosted in exotic settings that facilitate a special kind of camaraderie among delegates. Collaborations are spawned not only among researchers but with other stakeholders.
Highlights of the Conference include keynote lectures and the Awards Banquet, with one afternoon reserved for the holding of satellite meetings (hosted by professional societies) and training workshops.
