About the Week

Health Research Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness for the important research, world-class researchers and collaborative efforts that exist in Saskatchewan and are contributing to the growth of a high-performing health system, building a culture of innovation and improving the health of our citizens.

A successful Health Research Week will see activity and engagement throughout the week on different topic areas. We will engage our partners, institutions and Saskatchewan health researchers through various mediums to share SHRF’s stories and message and to contribute their own stories of impact to highlight the breadth of research activities taking place in our province.
