Please note: Health xChange Vancouver has been rescheduled to October 6, 2020. Please stay tuned for more information. 

We are taking Health xChange on the road. To grow research capacity in the interior, we are partnering with Interior Health and the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation for the first Health xChange in Kelowna, BC.

We bring together researchers, community members, and health system decision makers to network and share ideas about “how community engaged research influence health system change”.

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.
