The Okanagan Health Forum (OHF) was organized in 2005 to provide cutting-edge research in lifestyle medicine to health care professionals, allied health professionals, complementary health care practitioners, educators and the general public. It was formed to bring internationally acclaimed authorities on plant-based diets to inspire and motivate our residents to make choices that support exceptional health and well-being. The Okanagan Health Forum is run by a small handful of healthcare professionals and business owners volunteering their time.

The purposes of the association are: 

a) to bring recognized leaders in plant-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine to British Columbia to promote lifestyle changes that will improve the health and wellness of individuals and communities in the Okanagan, by providing evidence-based multimedia presentations on whole food plant-based nutrition to: 

  • The general public

  • The medical community

  • Educators


b) to bring acknowledged authorities on the impact of dietary choices on the environment to provide evidence-based multimedia presentations to Okanagan communities.​

c) to advocate for public policy that supports the prevention and treatment of chronic disease through the implementation of whole food plant-based diets.
