Health Forum NL 2015

Lay Summary 

Improving health and healthcare in Newfoundland and Labrador was a critical public policy issue in the 2015 provincial election. On October 27, 2015, senior representatives from the three main political parties visited Memorial University to outline their visions for health and community services in our province. 

The audience had an opportunity to ask the candidates about the issues that concerned them. 

The forum was attended by over 300 guests, who joined in persona and via webcast; interchanges were also posted to social media via Twitter. The recording of the event is available on NLCAHR's website here: Health Forum NL 2015
