Overview


Overview

OPHA is pleased to host its 2016 Fall Forum and Annual General Meeting as part of HealthAchieve 2016, the award-winning event that has long been one of the largest and most respected health care events in North America. HealthAchieve is the pre-eminent gathering place for health care and business leaders.



 


OPHA's 2016 Forum theme is Health For All - Closing the Health Equity Divide.

Vibrant health should be achievable by all. Yet, this is not true for far too many Ontarians who may be unfairly and unjustly disadvantaged due to their income, education, race, or other markers of social status. At this year's Forum, you will join leaders and professionals from across the health system to explore how together we can effectively address these health inequities and pursue a vision of health for all Ontarians.

At this year's Forum, you will:
 
  • Be inspired by leaders and thinkers to persevere in your health equity work,
  • Be challenged to think about and integrate health equity in novel ways,
  • Learn from the experiences of colleagues engaged in health equity work at the local level,
  • Gain practical skills, tools, and resources to enhance your work in promoting health equity,
  • Be a part of one of the largest health tradeshows in North American and network with leaders and professionals from across the health sector.
