Dean's Public Talks

CREATING THE FUTURE OF HEALTH - RIGHT HERE IN CALGARY

The Dean's Public Talks are a conversation about the future of heath and health care. The inaugural event was held in the fall of 2014, and the TEDx-style talks are continuing to evolve as an opportunity for our community to engage with scientists and physicians and find out how research is integral to improving health care. From cancer and infectious diseases, to wearable technology and advance life planning, research undertaken at the Cumming School of Medicine is helping to create the future of health each day.
