Keynote Speaker: Timothy Caulfied, LL.B, LL.M

Join us for breakfast, networking and a lively talk by Timothy Caulfield, a Canadian Research Chair in Health Law and Policy and a Professor in the Faculty of Law and the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta. In addition to being an accomplished academic, Timothy has released two books aimed at identifying and debunking messages and promised aimed at selling the general public on something related to health, happiness, beauty, diet or fitness. His first book, The Cure for Everything!: Untangling the Twisted Messages About Health, Fitness and Happiness, was released in 2011 and was followed up by his recently released book, Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong about Everything? The Not-so-creative Coupling of Celebrity Culture and Pseudo-science. Eyebrows will be raised and laughs had as Timothy speaks about his pop culture experiences while looking through a skeptic’s eye and scientific lens.

Looking Out Speaker: Leanne Foff, RN, BSCN, MSCIH

Leanne Foff’s medical trip to remote northern Cambodia in 2008 provided a sobering view of the abject poverty and dismal health status of the Khmer people.  With a subsequent Master’s Degree in International Health and a passionate desire to help, Leanne founded Kindred Hearts Cambodia in 2011.  The foundation partners with local Cambodian NGOs, and has established a fully-funded medical clinic in Stung Treng province which has since provided free medical care to over 1800 people.
