Health Talks

Health Talks: Bold Ideas. Stories that Inspire. is back!

Once again, this popular evening event will serve as our unofficial kick-off to the event. Health Talks will take place on the evening before the Quality Forum begins – February 18.

Engaging and passionate speakers – representing both health care and the public – will answer our question: What are your hopes for health care?

But Health Talks’ speakers won’t use PowerPoint presentations full of bullet points. They’ll use the PechaKucha 20×20 format, where each presentation contains 20 slides and each slide is displayed for exactly 20 seconds before automatically advancing to the next one. The slides can only feature photos or videos – no text!

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