Our Health Talks Student Contest is Back!

Each year, the first evening of the Quality Forum features a fun event called Health Talks. Eight speakers share their hopes for health care using the PechaKucha 20×20 presentation style, which means that they show 20 images for 20 seconds each while they’re talking. It’s a great way for over 300 audience members to hear new perspectives about our health care system.

And we’re looking for one BC student to be a part of it.

  • Who can apply? All students are eligible, from kindergarten to graduate school, as long as they’re currently studying in BC. Last year, our contest winner Jorri Gosse was in Grade 6. An interest in health care is an obvious asset!
  • What do we mean by “your hope for health care”? Your hope can be anything: a change you’d like to see in the health care system, a big vision for the future, a change in beliefs or values – it’s your hope.
  • How do you apply? That’s up to you! Previous applications have included an essay, a poem, a whiteboard video, and an infographic. We encourage you to use whatever medium suits your message – feel free to be creative! Whatever you decide, submit your entry by November 12.
  • What will you win? In addition to being one of eight speakers at Health Talks, the winner will receive complementary registration and travel for the Quality Forum.
