Health Quality BC is looking for an individual or team of students (maximum of three people) to share their hopes for health care as part of our annual Health Talks event at Quality Forum 2024!

Health Talks will take place on April 23, 2024, and is a Powered by PechaKucha event, which means speakers use images to inspire others. PechaKucha is a style of presenting ideas, knowledge and passion in an easy and memorable way. This format is simple, visual and short: 20 images x 20 seconds.

Your hope, or hopes, for health care can be anything. Outside-the-box. Based on experience or a vision for the future. Micro or macro. Your options are limitless!

How to Apply

Once you have your idea, tell us about it using any of the following formats:

• Video (maximum 3.5 minutes)

• Essay (short write-up)

• Design concept, photo, poem… surprise us!

All students in British Columbia – post-secondary, high school, elementary school – are welcome to apply.

Don’t miss your chance to take the stage alongside a diverse group of speakers and potentially inspire a change to BC’s health care system! The winner will also receive one complimentary registration to Quality Forum 2024.

Be sure to download our poster so you can share this opportunity with your friends
