Speakers include experts and local doctors who can speak about the history of the current healthcare crisis. They plan to explain recent initiatives and will discuss how medical practices and focuses have shifted. Impacts will also be explored, such as on the SPHHF.

Residents will be given the chance to speak and interested parties are invited to attend and participate. The forum is free to attend but people must register first, through the Mary Winspear Centre ticket office at marywinspear.ca or by calling 250-656-0275.
