Health xChange is coming to Kelowna — and we’re looking for presenters!

20 January 2020

We are taking Health xChange on the road. To highlight KT-focused health research in the BC Interior, we are partnering with Interior Health and the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation to present the first Health xChange in Kelowna, BC.

Join us on June 4, 2020 as we bring together researchers, community members, and health system decision-makers to network and share ideas relating to the event’s theme: “how community engaged research influences health system change”.

Call for presenters

Our call for presenters is now open. We are inviting presentations from across the full spectrum of BC health research. Topics might include, but are not limited to:

  • Creative ways of ensuring a more vibrant diversity of voices are heard, or different forms of knowledge are considered.
  • Novel initiatives that are working to influence health system changes.
  • Community-based participatory research to address the social determinants of health.
  • Learnings that you gleaned from health system change initiatives that didn’t go as planned.

Do you have a story to share? Check out our Call for Presenters and submit a 200-word overview or 2-3 minute video to by March 16, 2020.

Submissions should outline:

  • What health issues you hoped to address.
  • What changes were you hoping to make, and what changes you achieved.
  • Lessons learned.
  • Your contact information and where we might find further information about you, your project and/or organization. Presenters are encouraged to apply to co-present with a community partner.
