In Conversation with André Picard | City Conversations

Series City Conversations, 2019, Health

Many view the Canadian healthcare system as one of the country’s defining features. We frequently laud it as a success story of a free, universal healthcare system. But is it free? Is it comprehensive? Is it good value for money? Most importantly, are our beliefs about the quality of our healthcare system holding us back from improving it? 

To kick off 2019’s SFU City Conversations programming, we’re pleased to welcome André Picard, a health reporter and columnist with The Globe and Mail for a conversation on healthcare in Canada: how the healthcare system is organized, how it compares to other high-income nations, and how it might provide better health outcomes. Joining Picard is Diane Finegood, the former President & CEO of the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, and current Professor in SFU's Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue and Semester in Dialogue.

Our distinguished presenters will briefly frame the conversation. Then, it’s your turn to ask questions, make observations, and express your opinions. Don’t miss this important discussion on the Canadian healthcare system, register to attend today! As always, feel free to bring your lunch!

This SFU City Conversation is a presentation of SFU Public Square, sponsored by SFU VancouverSFU's City Program, and SFU's Semester in Dialogue
