HealthWorks is a monthly seminar series that provides students and members of the Capilano community with a meeting place and noteworthy talks and/or documentaries pertaining to hot topics in human health and well-being. This seminar series focuses on today's greatest public health challenges, as well as common health topics in mainstream media. Events are held on a Tuesday or Thursday, twice per term from 11:45 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. in the Bosa Theatre on Capilano University’s North Vancouver campus. Typically a 10-15 minute question and answer period occurs during this time, and attendees are encouraged to participate.
We have an exciting HealthWorks lineup for next term. Events are free and open to everyone.
