     The 7th International Conference on Urban Health (ICUH-2008) will be held at the Westin Bayshore in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA. The meeting begins Wednesday, October 29 with engaging pre-conference workshops. We will then welcome you with an opening plenary speaker, reception and poster viewing. The conference will end on Friday, October 31 after an exciting plenary speaker and closing reflections. The conference theme is Knowledge Integration: Successful Interventions in Urban Health and we encourage delegates to move beyond description and to share with us their actions, which have improved health of urban communities. The theme was chosen to showcase action-oriented projects and best practices. There are obviously many lessons for all of us to learn to affect positive change in our communities throughout the world. We have secured highly renowned, international speakers for this meeting and Vancouver offers an incredible setting to understand how the physical and social environment influences health. In addition, Vancouver has pursued innovative policies in North America to address the drug-related harms of addiction and has a long history of community activism that we want to share with you.

Vancouver is a dynamic, multicultural city set in a spectacular natural environment. No matter what time of the year you visit, there are indoor and outdoor activities to please adults, families, couples and friends to no end. Vancouver was voted the "Best City in the Americas" for 2004, 2005 and 2006 by Condé Nast Traveler magazine, based on the categories of ambience, friendliness, culture and sites, restaurants, lodging, and shopping. This is just one of our city's many awards and accolades that clearly demonstrate the many reasons to visit Vancouver!


On behalf of the ICUH Organizing Committee and the International Society for Urban Health Executive, I hope you will join us for this exciting conference in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Chair, ICUH 2008
