Call for Presenters - Health xChange Vancouver (May 2020)

On May 5, 2020MSFHR and the Vancouver Foundation will host the fourth annual Health xChange asking: How can youth-led and youth-engaged approaches help to re-define research? Using a PechaKucha format (20 slides, shown for 20 seconds each), presenters will share stories about how their youth-engaged research can improve health outcomes for young people.

We are inviting presentations from across the full spectrum of BC health research. Topics might include, but are not limited to:

  • Creative ways of ensuring a more vibrant diversity of youth voices are heard.
  • Considering different forms of knowledge (e.g. Indigenous storytelling).
  • Youth-based participatory action research to address inequities and access to health.
  • Methods for conducting or sharing research that address power imbalances.

Do you have a story to share? Check out our Call for Presenters and submit a 200-word overview or 2-3 minute video to KT@msfhr.org by February 28, 2020.


Submissions should outline:

  • What health / health equity issues you addressed.
  • What changes were you hoping to make, and what changes you achieved.
  • Lessons learned.
  • Your contact information and where we might find further information about you, your project and organization.
