International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference (IARC) 2020 comes to UBC!

The School of Audiology and Speech Sciences and March of Dimes Canada are proud to announce that they will be hosting the International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference (IARC) from June 18 – June 20, 2020 at the UBC Vancouver Campus.

The Chair of the organizing committee, Dr. Tami Howe, alongside co-chairs Eavan Sinden and Brent Page, were successful in their bid to host this internationally renowned conference, which was announced at IARC 2018 in Portugal in September.

As planning gets underway in the New Year, the organizing committee will be reaching out to BC’s network of aphasia clinicians and researchers to make this a truly collaborative event.
