Call for Abstracts--Early Years Conference 2010

The Victoria Conference Centre and The Fairmont Empress

We are pleased to announce that the advance notice for the Early Years Conference 2010 (February 4th - 6th, 2010) in Victoria, British Columbia has been finalized. An electronic PDF copy of the advanced notice is available on our website at http://www.interprofessional.ubc.ca/Early_Years_2010.html.

The conference will explore early childhood, family and community development through the lens of Child Rights. The U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990) articulates various inherent human rights that should be afforded to children. Policies designed to support and provide general and specific services to children and their families, should reflect these rights in order that all children may reach their full potential in society. Conference participants will have the opportunity to consider research, policy, and practice from a child's rights perspective in order to further the quality of their work with children, families and communities.

We are accepting abstract submissions until April 30th, 2009. If possible, please submit your abstract on-line at http://www.dentistry.ubc.ca/interprofessional/SubmissionForm.asp?conference_id=12.
