iCON Chinese Health Forums

In partnership with the Chinese community, iCON has hosted annual free health forums to educate and empower the Chinese community. Through presentations, demonstrations, and one-on-one activities, the iCON forums highlight strategies and best practices for managing chronic conditions at home with nutrition, medication management, stress reduction, exercise, and more. Participants are given the opportunity to ask questions to the experts, explore health exhibitions, participate in health screenings, take home relevant resources and learn about community support programs.

iCON forums are supported by the BC Ministry of Health Patients as Partners Initiative, the Health Authorities of BC, and the UBC Faculty of Medicine.
