BC's Whole Human Summit wants to break down barriers in wellness

Sep 8 2020, 10:47 am

A British Columbia-based conference is looking at how to navigate health and, ultimately, tackle existing barriers and challenges in the health and well-being sphere.

The Whole Human Summit is taking place from now until early November. The Squamish-based event is a unique conference experience that works to bring together health, policy, science, and technology experts with the general public.

From there, it’s about pushing barriers in the health industry with a focus on evidence-based knowledge and solution building.

“Our goals are to empower people to create change collectively, to better navigate their health, and to create opportunities for thought leaders to connect and build solutions,” reads the event website.

The virtual summit allows for attendees to personalize their summit experience. In addition to fascinating panels with industry experts, attendees will be able to connect with speakers and participate in Q&A chats, live polls, brainstorming sessions, and Slack channels.

Topics that will be discussed at the conference include using food as medicine, the role of leadership within introverts, and how to improve sleep and, ultimately, your health.

The event’s keynote speaker is also none other than Celina Caesar-Chavannes, a former Member of Parliament who advocates for people suffering from mental illness. She was named Champion of Mental Health Parliamentarian in 2017 by the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health.

Participants can attend a single session or participate in three or 10 at a discount. They’ll also be able to access recordings for any of their registered sessions. There will be a pay-it-forward option allowing attendees to pass sessions to others who normally wouldn’t be able to attend.

For more information, how to attend, and the different kinds of topics and speakers, be sure to visit the Whole Human Summit website.
