Welcome to the fourth annual Campus Alberta Student Conference on Health (CASCH), a conference designed to engage an interdisciplinary group of graduate and senior undergraduate students from across Alberta in a discussion about current trends and future directions in health promotion, health care, health research and practice in Alberta.

CASCH is a collaborative effort combining many institutions across Alberta. CASCH, a conference created by-students for students, has been a great success for three years now, as it brings together hundreds of graduate and senior undergraduate students in Alberta to create a platform for students to participate in meaningful confersations related to health research. CASCH supports the vision of Campus Alberta and strives to bring together students from across the province to share their research and ideas, access mentorship, and network with leaders in their fields. This year CASCH is inspiring the future of health by featuring innovative work in four thematic areas: • Trending Health Services and Policy Research • Building Healthy Communities and Populations • Exploring Pathways to Equity • Studying Disease Trends Overwhelmed by the success of CASCH for the past three years, we are ecstatic to present CASCH 2016. Thank you for making the fourth annual CASCH Conference a reality! We are excited to have you join us in Calgary and continue the conversation on inspiring the future of health here in Alberta! Sincerely, The CASCH 2016 Steering Committee

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS Dr. James Talbot has a B.Sc. and PhD.

from the University of Alberta, an M.D. from the University of Toronto and is a Royal College Specialist in Medical Microbiology. He has been the Director of the Provincial Laboratory for Public Health of Northern Alberta, an MOH for Edmonton and CMOH for Nunavut and Alberta. He is a 2016 recipient of the President’s Award from the Public Health Physicians of Canada.

Dr. Stephanie Nixon is a physiotherapist

and global health researcher who has been an HIV activist and scholar for nearly two decades. She has received outstanding training in physiotherapy at McMaster University (1996), which then led to her early clinical work with people living with HIV at the Wellesley Hospital in Toronto. There she received life-changing, real-world schooling on HIV activism. A growing interest in critical perspectives on power, HIV and disability led her back into the academy. She enjoyed an eye-opening education in research at the University of Toronto through an MSc in the Graduate Department of Rehabilitation Science (2000) and PhD in Public Health and Bioethics (2006). With the support of a wonderful partner, she then moved her family to South Africa for postdoctoral training at the Health Economics and HIV/ AIDS Research Division at the University of KwaZuluNatal. She says she now enjoys a creative, challenging and superbly rewarding career as an educator/ learner exploring how not only the content but also the process of teaching can be a transformative feat of activism. She explores these ideas alongside a program of research on HIV and disability in Canada.

Location: Cassio B New developments in visualization technology open up innovative possibilities for medical education. I will demonstrate this by example of the LINDSAY Virtual Human, a multi-disciplinary project between the Cumming School of Medicine and the Faculty of Science. I will demonstrate how computer technology has influenced how one can experience and learn about human anatomy and physiology. We will show interactive displays and how we combine game engines, virtual reality, and augmented reality to create highly immersive and engaging “journeys through the human body”. We will also demonstrate applications of the futuristic HoloLens, which suggest a paradigm shift in human-computer interaction, with interesting opportunities for education in medicine and health. Jaime Rogers: Ending Homelessness Location: Cassio A In 2009, Medicine Hat became one of the first Canadian cities to commit to ending homelessness using the housing first approach. The housing first approach is a non-compliance based model which focuses on quickly moving people experiencing homelessness into permanent housing.
