Their definition of knowledge dissemination professionals includes, but is not limited to, journalists (traditional and new media), educators and representatives of patient groups, charitable foundations and similar organisations.
As a condition of funding, the awardees will communicate the contents of the meeting to their target audiences. All dissemination products must be made available in English and/or French (in addition to other languages, as appropriate to the intended audience), and must target Canadian or global audiences. Priority will be given to qualified Canadian applicants.
Each award will cover the cost of meeting registration (which includes all accommodation and meals), plus reimbursement of economy class travel costs up to $1,000. Applications due September 1, 2017.
