Throughout the conference, researchers from diverse disciplines, backgrounds and professions will share new research on topics related to families and family well-being at the #FAM2019 Poster Sessions.

The poster sessions provide individuals and organizations that study, serve and support families with an opportunity to connect with delegates (and each other) while highlighting research on a broad range of themes/topics related to families and family life.

Below you can find a list of poster presentations that will be at the National Conference in Ottawa. Satellite locations may also have poster sessions – check their satellite event webpages for details.
