Pizza with the Profs

Sessions are held at Grand River Hospital Freeport Campus (Sun Life Town Hall) the second Wednesday of the month to promote the exchange of information between the clinical and academic communities.

UW researchers are eager to learn about clinical problems from the Grand River Hospital community, and clinical staff at Grand River Hospital have the opportunity to provide input on academic research to address their clinical needs.

The sessions include a short presentation by a University of Waterloo researcher, an informal Q & A and discussion and of course… PIZZA!

If you have any questions, or suggestions for speakers please contact Chekema Prince at UW, or Sarah Laferriere at Grand River Hospital.
