The conference is one of the biggest and longest-running events in the English-speaking part of the Caribbean and Latin America. It aims to bring together regional and international healthcare professionals, NGOs, students, academics, and researchers. It has lined up subject matter experts as keynote speakers for the exchange of knowledge and expertise. The speakers at the hybrid conference are:

  • Dr Joy St. John, Executive Director, CARPHA

  • Professor Victor S Blanchette, Professor of Pediatrics, University of Toronto
  • Professor Seeromanie Harding, Professor of Social Epidemiology, King’s College, London

Apart from the speaker lineup, the conference will also host exhibitors from the Caribbean and the rest of the world. They will get a chance to showcase their latest digital health research and innovative products through vendor and sponsor booths.

Executive Director of CARPHA, Dr. Joy St. John said: “This 66th CARPHA Annual Health Research Conference is the first hybrid format conference in the six decade history of the event. CARPHA is passionate about showcasing and encouraging the conduct of research in the Region. Over the three days, we have a chance to enjoy the research findings that will be presented by our very own researchers: students, young researchers, research stalwarts. The good thing about this conference is the perfect blend of youth and experience, which makes for an exciting glimpse of the Caribbean from a researcher’s perspective.”
