StaR Summit

Essential Evidence for Sick Children: Better Science, Informed Decisions, Healthier Children

6 May 2020

COVID-19 Update Re: StaR 2020 Summit

Dear StaR Child Health Members & Colleagues,


It is with the deepest disappointment and regret to inform you that as a result of the continued spread and impact of the COVID-19 across the world, the StaR Child Health 2020 Summit in Toronto, Canada planned to take place from October 2nd to 3rd this year has been cancelled.

The StaR Child Health team made the difficult decision to not hold an in-person, virtual or hybrid Summit this year. Instead, we will plan a program of work that will enable international collaborative research and knowledge translation around child health clinical trials. This work will lead up to an in-person Summit both in 2021 and in 2022.


We thank you for your ongoing support. Stay tuned for announcements regarding StaR Child Health activities.


Please keep well during this stressful and difficult time.
