There’s less than a week left to register for the Towards Unity for Health (TUFH) 2022 Conference! Health care professionals, students and partners with an interest in improving health equity in British Columbia and globally are invited to attend this renowned international and multi-sectoral conference.

Date, Location & Hosts
The annual event is being hosted in Vancouver from August 16–19 by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC, BC Patient Safety and Quality Council, and TUFH: The Network, in partnership with First Nations Health Authority and Métis Nation BC. Registration will close on Sunday, July 31 for in-person attendance and August 10 for virtual attendance.

What to Expect
The theme for TUFH 2022 is Moving Forward Together: Unity for Health for All and the event will offer an impressive array of over 300 local, provincial, national and international presenters providing inspiring keynote addresses, fascinating TUFH documentaries, interactive TUFH talks (similar to TED talks), compelling workshops, and informative community site visits.

Indigenous health is a key focus area for this year’s conference, which presents opportunities for participants to learn about cultural safety and humility in health care, intergenerational trauma and becoming trauma informed, and Two-eyed Seeing approaches. Participants will also hear from several Indigenous keynote speakers, including Danièle Behn Smith, Christopher Horsethief, and Shawn and Heather Atleo.

A vast array of topics that impact local and global populations are also on the agenda, such as rural and remote health; non-communicable, tropical and endemic diseases; lessons learned from the pandemic; child and adolescent health; mental health and well-being; gender-based violence; and much more.

Attend from Wherever You Are
Both in-person and virtual registration is available. First Nations Health Authority is also offering full sponsorship for Indigenous Peoples to attend, which includes registration for the pre-conference and three full conference days.
