In 2010, while volunteering in Post-Earthquake Haiti, Sonny experienced first-hand the perils of inadequate health care faced by Earth’s most marginalized peoples. As an alumnus of the International Space University, and former top 40 CSA Astronaut Candidate, he became intrigued by space-age solutions to the world’s health problems.

He then co-founded Cloud Dx to create a fully autonomous ‘digital doctor’ called Vitaliti. Vitaliti is currently a finalist in the Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE. Cloud Dx’s other approved solutions, anchored by their Pulsewave® wrist device, are revolutionizing how your health is monitored at home.

Why is our healthcare system always in crisis? | Dr. Bill Ghali | TEDxCalgary

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Dr. William Ghali explores the dimensions and trade-offs of our health care system, compares the Canadian model to US health care system and other global healthcare systems, ultimately pushing us to examine the elements behind good health care that are universal.

Dr. William Ghali, MD, MPH, is the Scientific Director of the O’Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary. He is also a Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary, and a practicing physician specialized in Internal Medicine.

He conducts health services research and his work focuses on interdisciplinary approaches to evaluating and improving health system performance to produce better patient outcomes and improved system efficiency. He leads or co-leads three inter-related research and innovation initiatives: the Alberta Provincial Project for Outcome Assessment in Coronary Heart Disease (APPROACH); the Ward of the 21st Century initiative (W21C); and International Methodology Consortium for Coded Health Information (IMECCHI), with strong linkages to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Dr. Ghali has has published over 350 papers in peer-reviewed journals. In April 2012, The Globe and Mail named his as the Canadian public health researcher with the highest publication H-index, a bibliometric measure of publication impact. He recently completed two terms as a Canada Research Chair in Health Services Research.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The Impact of Residential Schools on Aboriginal Healthcare | Dawn Tisdale | TEDxComoxValley

Dawn talks about residential schools and their impact on the people and their family’s who were involved. She passionately makes a plea for a link between what residential school survivors experienced, and how their future healthcare needs have to match the impacts of that experience.

Dawn Tisdale is a third year student obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at North Island College. Dawn grew up in Montreal, moved to the island in 2000, and became a community support worker for adults with disabilities. Wanting to further explore her career in health care, she decided to go back to school to become an RN. Since entering the BSN program, Dawn has become extremely passionate about nursing – aboriginal health, in particular. What fuels her fire is social justice and advocacy for health promotion.

Dawn was recently elected president of the Canadian Nursing Student Association, representing 28,000 nursing students across Canada.

Americans Forced To Flee The Country To Access Affordable Healthcare

The price of prescription drugs and some medical procedures in the United States are reaching obscene levels, and the problem has gotten so bad that Americans are actually having to leave this country just to be able to afford medicines and care. Groups of people are traveling to Canada each month for cheaper prescription drugs, while droves are crossing the Mexican border each day for dental care. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains how the problem got so bad and what can be done about it.

About every six months. Donald Trump loves to warn us about a new caravan headed towards the United States. But you know what, there’s actually several different caravans happening on a regular basis that Donald Trump has not warning us about. And those are the caravans of American citizens traveling up to Canada to buy things like insulin because they can’t afford it if they were to buy it here in the United States. You know, a few weeks ago we talked about, uh, the first story when it first popped, a group of American citizens had to head up to Canada to buy insulin because they couldn’t afford it here in the United States because the price has skyrocketed so much. It’s more than doubled since the year 2012 more than doubled versus heading up to Canada to buy a vial, which is one 10th of the cost as it is here in the United States. So rather than not afford this life saving medication that they have to have, they’re packing up and heading to Canada, buying vials of this and coming back home and using it on themselves, using it for their diabetic children.
Or you know, any of the seven and a half million people in this country who have to take insulin for their diabetes. But that’s only part of the story. Another story we told you recently was the fact that you have American citizens along our southern border and even a little further north in that having to cross the border and go into Mexico in order to get dental care. In fact, there’s a couple of towns right along the border there in Mexico. We’re basically, every business is actually a dentist’s office because of the dental tourism that comes from the United States so they can get quality affordable care. So you’ve got tons of Americans heading south of the border to get quality, affordable healthcare and plenty heading north of our border to get quality affordable health care doc. The common thread here, people are having to leave the United States in order to be able to afford medicine and medical procedures.
And the irony there is that Republicans and conservatives have been telling us that if we enact some kind of Medicare for All plan and hell, they told us this, if we enacted Obamacare, it was going to happen. That doctors are going to leave the United States cause it wouldn’t be profitable anymore. Oh, it’s plenty profitable for them. Always has been. Always will be, but it’s actual regular Americans citizens who are having to leave the country to be able to afford care and in what is supposed to be the wealthiest country in the world, the most advanced country in the world. This is 100% unacceptable. It shouldn’t be happening, but it is because we have allowed the pharmaceutical companies, the insurance and the hospital corporations to do it.
Folks. That’s literally the only reason this is happening because we’ve just let them over the years, you know, the first few years of this, maybe it wasn’t so bad I they raised their prices a little bit and we’re okay, but then they start doing it every single year and suddenly this thing that we didn’t think we had to pay attention to as a federal government grew to proportions that now we have to have radical change just in order to fix it.

The TRUTH About Universal Healthcare! (from a Canadian)

Obamacare, Trumpcare, Ryancare, Berniecare. Doesn’t matter what you call it, when you hand over control of healthcare to the Government through a single-payer, universal system: it sucks. Allow me, someone who grew up with socialized medicine in Montreal, Canada, explain why.
