HealthWorks Events

      • 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.
