Advisory Council Spring Forum 2021

AHS’ Community Engagement team proudly welcomes you to its first-ever virtual Spring Forum! Taking place June 9-12 over the Zoom platform, we look forward to you joining us to hear from health experts and award winning speakers over the course of these four days.

Historically, the Advisory Council Forum has been an in-person event held annually in Edmonton. Due to the pandemic, we switched gears to a virtual format to ensure our members, stakeholders and AHS leaders continue to have the opportunity to connect, learn from one another, work together and build partnerships in health, in a safe manner.

All pertinent information related to Forum 2021 is available on this page, including agendas, daily Zoom links, speaker bios and your very own Forum BINGO card. A description of each session is available in the daily schedule, below.

To register, please see the tab ‘registration.’ There is no cost to register and attend this event.

Thank you to Council Chairs who formed the Forum working group for your thoughtful ideas, planning and timely selection of this year’s theme – Hope & Resilience. We look forward to a successful event!

Watch as Advisory Council members share some unique ideas of things they do to unwind, unplug and indulge in a bit of self-care. 

What are your go-to activities? If you have uplifting and enlightening ideas to add to the mix, we'd like to hear from you! See guidance below and upload your video to this section. Alternately, share your ideas in the box below.
