McMaster Health Advocacy Symposium

The McMaster Health Advocacy Symposium is a student-run event that aims to stimulate dialogue between those who will be working in healthcare, policy, and research towards greater equity and health outcomes for all. We also hope to support students in healthcare-related programs in their development as ‘health advocates,' one of the core CanMEDS competencies for future physicians.

We hope our symposium will be an opportunity to explore the skills needed for effective advocacy, ideas around why and how to advocate responsibly, various shapes and forms of health-related advocacy, and the myriad possible roles of health professionals (as care providers, administrators, researchers, policy makers, etc.) in working to enable and restore health at the individual, community, and international levels.
