Overview

*COVID-19 UPDATE*

BC RURAL HEALTH CONFERENCE 2020 IS CANCELLED

The Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc) regrets to announce that it is canceling its 2020 BC Rural Health Conference (RHC). This is a disappointing but prudent decision as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. 

The safety and well-being of our learners, our speakers, and in turn their families and the rural communities they serve is our top priority.  

If you have booked any flight or hotel arrangements, please proceed with canceling those bookings now.

Thank you for your understanding – we hope that you and your communities stay safe and healthy.

If you have any questions, please contact cpd.info@ubc.ca.
