We have the pleasure to invite you to the 2011 Quebec Black Medical Association (QBMA) Scientific Symposium. This is the second such symposium organized by the QBMA, and the first of the annual series of scientific symposiums to be organized in conjunction with our annual scholarships ceremony. This symposium, like the one before showcases the medically related research being carried out by black and visible minority researchers and students across Quebec and Canada.
 Presenters at this conference will consist of exceptional university students involved in research, some of whom would have applied for or received QBMA scholarships for the 2011/2012 academic year. You will therefore have the opportunity to interact will fellow students and scientists partaking in a wide diversity of medical research. This also presents an excellent networking opportunity for young researchers, keen on gaining access to seeing as we will have representatives of our pharmaceutical and corporate sponsors in attendance.
 The oral presentations and poster sessions will be adjudicated by accomplished scientists and there will be a first prize of $100 in each category. There will also be a refund for poster printing expenses up to $50 per person. Please see the attached abstract format. Registration and attendance is free of charge. You can send an email entitled “abstract submission” to this email address ( with your abstract attached. Please indicate if you wish to attend the separate scholarship award dinner in the evening, with an estimated cost of $100 per attendee.

There is more information on our website PDF scans of the booklet from the 1st QBMA symposium, held in 1998, will be uploaded soon.

Thank you QBMA!

It's a great and wonderful way to help those who are in need. As we all know, the cost of books can be very expensive. This is my way of saying thank you to the QBMA; I am grateful for the help they provided Tiffany in an needful time. Thank you very much once again. Keep up the good work!
