      Title: Save The Date for OPHA's Fall Forum!

      Public health continues to be a leading and important voice for protecting and promoting the health of Ontarians. However, there are other voices striving for the attention of policy makers and the public. Public health's goal of creating health-promoting environmental and social conditions through public policy is not universally shared. Furthermore, public confusion about health persists as a growing number of voices spread conflicting messages that directly undermine the public's health.

      Among so many voices, how can public health continue to be a strong voice for healthy public policy?

      How can public health more effectively engage the wider society and build public support for public health issues?

      We will explore the answers to these questions at this year's Forum - so be sure to register to reserve your place!
