Be a Student Speaker at Health Talks!

Share Your Hopes for Health Care at Quality Forum 2020

Attention students! Here’s your chance to take your place behind the Health Talks podium and tell more than 300 patients and health care professionals about your hopes for health care.

The first evening of the Quality Forum starts off with a bang, showcasing eight speakers who share their hopes for health care using the PechaKucha 20×20 presentation style. That means they show 20 images for 20 seconds each while they’re talking. It’s challenging and exciting and has made for some amazing, innovative presentations over the years.

From nurse/magicians to emergency physicians and organic farmers, we’ve had a wide variety of presenters captivate our audience. And now we’re looking for an outstanding student to add to this year’s lineup:

Who can apply?

All BC students are eligible, from kindergarten to graduate school. 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.

What will you win?

In addition to speaking at Health Talks, the winner will receive complimentary registration and travel for the entire Quality Forum.

How do you apply?

That’s up to you! Previous applications have included an essay, poem, whiteboard video and song. We encourage you to use whatever medium suits your message – be creative! Just submit your entry by November 12.

Help us spread the word! Download an easy-to-print PDF poster that you can display in your school or workplace.
