Better Breathers Lunch and Learn Event - April 2021 TBD

Learn how - nowadays - healthcare decisions are being informed by research - including 'computer models.'

WHAT: Join us via ZOOM for a 30-minute spotlight with Dr. Stephanie Harvard who will explain why the public have an important role to play in research. As part of her presentation she will present two short animated videos about COPD-related computer models.

WHEN: April 21, 2021 - 1:00 to 2:00pm PST 

WHY: In healthcare, decisions affect patients and the public. In the doctor’s office, patients may have to decide whether to take a new medication. In the provincial government, policy-makers may have to decide whether to make a new medication available in the publicly-funded health system. How can we make more informed healthcare decisions? Dr. Harvard and her team need your input.

THANKS FOR YOUR TIME: Participants will be offered an ‘e-lunch’ - a gift card of $20 - and will have the opportunity for questions and discussion!
