Welcome to the next pop-up event from SPEAK, the public speaking platform for people with ideas and stories. The theme for this pop-up is “Health” where we will be exploring the ideas and stories of 10 unique and diverse individuals in relation to our theme. Brought to you by our internal production team of George Andriopoulos, Fred P. Banny, and Jason Martin.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” An important implication of this definition is that mental health is more than just the absence of mental disorders or disabilities.The World Health Organization (W.H.O.)
SPEAK: Health will be a broad theme for us as our 10 SPEAKers story-tell us their definitions of what health means to them. Our hope is that people will leave this pop-up with a better understanding of how different yet similar our stories can be, and to reflect on how their own health has had an effect on them and their lives.
