Quality Forum to bring lively, engaging talks about health care to town

Health care is one of the most core elements of Canadian identity. Everyone is affected by it, but few get a chance to discuss it in depth with experts.

That's where the Quality Forum comes in: on February 27 - March 1, you'll be able to see eight engaging, energetic and passionate speakers – including best-selling author Vincent Lam (The Headmaster's Wager)representing both health care and the public – answer your question: What are your hopes for health care?

This is no run-of-the-mill conference: speakers aren't reading off cue cards or using PowerPoint presentations full of bullet points. Speeches will be short, snappy and on point. Borrowing from the Pecha Kucha format, each presentation contains 20 slides and each slide is displayed for exactly 20 seconds before automatically advancing to the next one. Just photos: no text!

When: Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 7 pm (doors open at 6)

Registration: $15, at

Hyatt Regency Vancouver 
655 Burrard St., Vancouver, BC
