Advocacy and education to improve the lives of children and their families.

Training the Next Generation

Welcome! Through CFAAR's education and training programs, we provide students and trainees opportunities to engage in a dynamic research community where they contribute to real world research projects, explore contemporary health issues, and translate knowledge into making positive impacts in research, medicine, and public health within their own communities and beyond. Education remains central to CFAAR’s mission and we offer several educational and training opportunities for high school, undergraduate, graduate, medical students, residents, and fellows. If participating in a CFAAR program interests you, please select your educational level for more information on our current program offerings. We look forward to connecting with you! -Dr. Ashley Dyer and the CFAAR Education & Training Team
