Dear RHSRNbc members,

I hope this newsletter finds you well and rested after a sunshine-filled long weekend!  May started with a very successful RHSRNbc research symposium at UBC attended by researchers, clinicians, and students from BC and Australia.  Symposium proceedings will be posted on our website and highlighted in our June newsletter. 

We are featuring our Team Building Collaborative Awards in this newsletter.  Please see the box below with additional information - we will be accepting applications until June 26th, 2015.  If you have any questions about the awards or applications feel free to contact me by email.  

We are heading up to Pentiction, BC this weekend for the Rural Emergency Continuum of Care (RECC) Conference - we hope to see many of you there and will report on the conference in June.

Happy reading!

Warm regards,
Emily Ryan, Network Coordinator
