Stakeholder Analysis via Survey

The DOHaD Society of Canada Education committee is currently in the process of developing an education and training program to serve our community.

To help us lay out this exciting roadmap, we would appreciate your participation in this short survey in order to learn about your interest and needs within a DOHaD-related education and training program. The survey will take you 5 minutes.

Your feedback is very important to us and will help in developing a program that suits your needs.

Thank you!

Tim Regnault and Gerlinde Metz
Co-Chairs, Education Committee
