Description

Health xChange is an evening of inspiring stories about how community engaged research can make a difference in creating healthy people and healthy communities. It’s an opportunity to learn from and network with others passionate about including patients in health research.

Ten speakers will share innovative approaches that have made community engaged research matter. Speakers will use a PechaKucha format (20 images x 20 seconds), each conveying their big ideas in just over six minutes.

The Health xChange is co-hosted by the BC SUPPORT Unit and the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research.
