A collaborative between community health-care providers and local residents interested in learning more and promoting health and wellness, PACE (which stands for Personalized Assessment and Change Education) is a TED Talks-inspired speakers' series hosted (on a rotating basis) at Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg and the Community Health Centres of Northumberland, in Port Hope.

Northumberland Hills Hospital, the Northumberland Family Health Team, the Community Health Centres of Northumberland, internal medicine specialists IMCare and local patients and caregivers are all represented on the 2018/19 planning table, as is the Interactive Media Development - Film and Television Production program at Loyalist College, which has partnered with the team to support audio and visual recording and distribution.

Talks are held monthly at 5:30 PM, September through June, on the third Wednesday of the month. One hour in total, each talk consists of a 30-minute presentation followed by a 20-minute, interactive question and answer speaker/audience discussion and a short moderator summary to conclude.

Seats are available free of charge, on a first-come, first reserved basis. Pre-registration is required, to manage room occupancy limits. For information on upcoming sessions, please see below! Questions? Contact Jennifer Gillard at 905-377-7757 or jgillard@nhh.ca
