Health Care. Interested in getting involved?

Committed Collaborators.

Improvements across complex health-care systems are established through building a culture of innovation and a community of collaboration. With this in mind, Accelerate Okanagan, BC Cancer, Interior Health, and The University of British Columbia joined forces to host an annual forum. On October 18th, health researchers, clinicians, innovators, entrepreneurs, and members of the public met to explore the current state of cancer care in BC and discuss the ground-breaking research shaping the future of health in our province.


Our hope is that we have created an environment where clinical and academic colleagues can share their perspectives on the complex problems facing the health-care system today,” says Dr. Ross Halperin, Regional Medical Director for BC Cancer— Kelowna. “Our strategy is to attract and engage the regional innovation community to assist in developing innovative solutions.”
