Event description

Description

This is a free public event for patients, public, and family and friend caregivers to learn about and use health research to inform your health choices.

The event includes a light dinner, informative presentations, and a talk show style conversation.

You will be treated to an interactive presentation on interpreting health research by Dr. Mark Battersby, philosopher, author, and expert on critical thinking. Then medical librarian Brooke Scott will share useful tips and tricks on finding reliable sources with her talk 'Dr. Google'.

The evening will be capped with a talk show style conversation hosted by Shushma Datt (of Spice Radio) with three guests: Miranda Tymoshuck (patient partner), Dr. Grace Park (family physician), and Dr. Bubela (Dean FHS, SFU). The conversation will explore challenges, opportunities, and tips for finding and using health research with lots of time for audience questions.

Check-in and food starts at 6:00pm. Presentations at 6:30pm. Please RSVP for this free event for catering purposes.
