[Event] Alberta Interprofessional Conference – The Future of Healthcare
AIC is back!
The University of Alberta Health Sciences Students’ Association (HSSA) would like to invite you to attend and participate in our annual Alberta Interprofessional Conference (AIC) on March 21 and 22, 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
AIC is a conference that brings together students, faculty and health professionals of all health sciences backgrounds from all over Alberta to learn about and discuss recent advancements in healthcare from an interdisciplinary point of view. It is a one-of-a-kind event organized by students, for students to give them the opportunity to learn, teach, and collaborate with other healthcare professionals in the province. Our theme this year, The Future of Health Care, will focus on the changing practices in health care, the move towards increasing collaboration between disciplines, and different technologies and policies to promote these changes.
