Thank you to everyone involved in PHABC Conference 2019, we couldn’t have done it without you!



Another successful PHABC conference is in the books and we couldn’t have hosted such an excellent one without the support from all of our sponsors, the dedication from our volunteers, PHABC staff and Scientific Program Committee members, and of course, the quality presentations from all of our outstanding speakers. Thank you all for helping to create a welcoming and supportive environment where people from all over could network and share knowledge on complexity science and complex adaptive systems. We hope you can take what you learned over those two days back to your respective communities and effect positive change across BC and beyond.
