QPID's Youth Conference is a cost free, one day conference offered to students in the Kingston area to come learn about, and critically analyze a variety of development issues. This past year (March 2019), our conference theme was ‘Global Health: A Universal Human Right' where the discussions, workshops, and speakers were all centered around physical and mental health and the impact it has on local and global development. The students gathered in The Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning on March 20th from 9am to 3pm. Ms. Maegan McConnell, a Queen’s University Professor, spoke on Global Mental Health, while Ms. Jennifer Fieldhouse, from the Aga Khan Foundation, spoke on Global Food Security. The conference also included a series of workshops: Mindfulness (led by Life Coach and Mindfulness Instructor, Kajal Punnoose), Barriers to Healthcare Access (led by QPID), and Global Food Security and Nutrition (also led by QPID).
