Sharing Stories of Excellence: UBCM Convention 2015

Sharing Stories of Excellence: UBCM Convention 2015

Oct 07th, 2015 related to PlanH (2011 - Current)

BCHC was thrilled to attend the UBCM convention in late September. Our trade show booth was a hub of resource sharing and storytelling with a graphic wall, videography and photobooth. Read on to hear about local leaders sharing inspiring stories and find out who won our prize pack. 

We captured the stories of collaboration towards building healthy communities through visual recording on a graphic wall and through a series of portraits. We also turned a spotlight on 15 local leaders from every health authority with the PlanH Local Leaders Cam, with videography from Claudia Medina. 

Check out a snapshot of the day via Storify here.
