Events and Learning

Health xChange is an annual evening of PechaKucha-style storytelling. The event brings together researchers, research user partners, and the public to share and learn about research evidence in a fun and engaging way.

Kelowna: We took Health xChange on the road. We partnered with Interior Health and the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation for the first Health xChange in Kelowna, bringing together researchers, community members and health system decision-makers to network and share ideas about how community engaged research influences health system change.

 

Vancouver: On June 16, 2022, Health Research BC, SFU and Vancouver Foundation hosted the fourth annual Health xChange and first Canadian Knowledge Mobilization networking event, asking: “How can youth-led and youth-engaged approaches help to re-define research and knowledge?”
