Health Talks

Health Talks is an annual evening event, taking place on the night of March 1. It’s a perfect activity for those who attend a pre-Forum session, arrive in Vancouver for the Forum, or for anyone seeking an inspirational end to their work day.

Eight engaging and passionate speakers will answer our question:

What are your hopes for health care?

But Health Talks’ speakers don’t use presentations full of bullet points. They use the PechaKucha 20×20 format, where each presentation contains 20 photos and each photo is displayed for exactly 20 seconds before automatically advancing to the next one.

Health Talks is an incredible event, and audience feedback has been overwhelmingly positive in previous years. Want to see what’s in store?
