The annual scientific symposium of the Canadian Academy of Psychiatric Epidemiology was held this year in beautiful Quebec City. This year’s conference focused on the use of administrative health data in psychiatric epidemiology research. With lab director Ian Colman on sabbatical in Oslo, APEAL lab sent two representatives in his stead. Mila Kingsbury (research associate) and Nathan Cantor (MSc student) both presented posters at the conference. Many thanks to host Alain Lesage and the entire organizing committee!
