Description


The Western Canadian Universities Big Data Health Conference (WCUC) is a partnership between the universities of British Columbia, Alberta, Calgary, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. The primary goal of this event, taking place on September 28-29, 2017 in Banff, AB, is to foster collaboration between the Western Canadian medical schools.
