CIFAR hosted a symposium on February 6, 2014 called From Cell to Society: A world where children can succeed. Through three panels, CIFAR presented research results from their programs, and celebrated the life and work of Dr. Clyde Hertzman. The conference was well attended by policymakers, practitioners, and foundation and community leaders. Presentations from the symposium remain accessible via webcast.
