McMaster Health Forum | Public Events

 

The McMaster Health Forum regularly hosts events to support learning about the pressing issues of our time. Join one of our events, which include:

  • optimal aging public talks, which are citizen-focused talks sharing insights on how we can stay healthy, active and engaged as we grow older (organized by the McMaster Health Forum as part of its knowledge translation enterprise funded by McMaster University’s Labarge Optimal Aging Initiative);
  • 'Top Ten' webinars, which feature insights into health systems (and in future, through Forum+, social systems), evidence-informed policymaking and a range of key health issues, from Forum experts and influential health-system leaders and researchers from around the world; and
  • student events focused on engaging McMaster University students in learning, discussion and collective action on healthcare challenges.

Where indicated below, many events also offer the opportunity to participate remotely.
