FAQ and Contact Assistance - General

Please contact Shea Coburn, secoburn@ucalgary.ca and Sara McCullough at hbi@ucalgary.ca and include all relevant details, including any posters, images or registration links required. If your event is determined to be relevant to HBI members/audiences, we will share on social media/Brainworks/email etc.

For external events and internal events that are not centrally run by HBI, HBI does not provide support for marketing materials creation, registration management or event execution.

Please note, the HBI is not a medical office and does not provide advice about treatment and care directly to patients. If you have questions about your health or a medical condition, please contact your health care provider or go to a medical clinic. You may use our member directory to contact your doctor, Google search, or reach out the the Foothills Switchboard at 403.944.1110.

If you wish to see a specialist your family doctor will need to make the referral on their end directly to the specialist. 

For those working in medical clinics or with physicians/specialists, please note the HBI does not have access to any patient medical files, nor details about appointments or referrals. You will need to contact the doctor directly for this information, either at their office or clinic. You can use our member directory for contact info and if not available, a Google search to find their clinic/contact info.
