PACE

Northumberland PACE speakers' series

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) began as a TED Talks-inspired speakers' series previously hosted (on a rotating basis) at Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg and the Community Health Centres of Northumberland, in Port Hope. Due to the physical distancing requirements of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have temporarily moved the event to a virtual format, using Zoom.

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 Northumberland PACE planning table.

From January 2021 through June 2021, talks will be held monthly at 5:30 PM, 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.
