Professional Education & Lunch

About

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 adlequipment.com 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 Lunch & Learn 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 a complimentary lunch. The sessions are held from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. up to three times monthly on varying days. Buffet lunch will be served at 11:45am.

If you would like to receive email invitations to these sessions please sign up using the form here, or visit adlequipment.com and sign up for an account by selecting "Account Request".
