Professional Education & Lunch


For over 25 years Healthcare Solutions has committed to being a leading provider of health care information for our professional customers through provision of up-to-date catalogues, live educational sessions, and blog publications.

The volume and variety of Alberta Aids to Daily Living Products carried on and in store demands subsequent education for health professionals making product choices for their clients; we are dedicated to providing this education.

Healthcare Solutions offers professional education sessions in our private, purpose-built Summit Room on the second floor of our Edmonton South Gateway Boulevard location. These sessions give health professionals an opportunity to engage in presentations given by product vendor representatives and other professionals over lunch.

We regularly offer 1.5 hour sessions from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. with a complimentary* buffet lunch** served at 11:45 a.m., as well as occasional special full-day education events

We regret to inform you that we are presently cancelling all Professional Education Events in our Summit Room for the months of March and April 2020 on account of the recent COVID-19 outbreak.
Though these sessions are attended by less than 250 people, the entire Pagnotta facility has decided to restrict events held in the building and the majority of our product/equipment representatives have been restricted from travelling and/or attending any conferences or events.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We certainly hope to reschedule these sessions, potentially for our fall series. 
Attendees are still welcome to register for our May and June sessions, however, it is yet to be determined whether these will also have to be postponed.
