#RealityCheckup: addressing confounding societal issues that undermine people’s health and the care they receive

Save the date for the much-anticipated College Education Day, held again this year at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Friday, September 14, 2018.

With guidance and insight from experienced, engaging experts, this year’s theme aims to address a selection of complex topics, from the importance of cultural humility to combating anti-science myths. Join colleagues to explore these and other confounding issues facing physicians today.

The program includes plenary sessions, case studies and interactive workshops for an all-encompassing educational experience and an opportunity for deep reflection on these ongoing challenges.

The College is very pleased to welcome back the ever popular Timothy Caulfield, BSc, LLB, LLM, professor, presenter, and author of The Vaccination Picture, Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?: When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash, and The Cure for Everything: Untangling the Twisted Messages about Health, Fitness and Happiness. This year, Tim will will focus on the art and science of communicating evidence-based medical concepts to skeptical patients.
